Code P1624:M52 coolant temperature below thermostat regulating temperature. Check the temperature of the coolant and also with a scan tool, check the actual reading given by the coolant temperature switch. It could be the thermostat or a coolant sensor.Look also for any broken/corroded wires to the sensors as well.

I accidently put water in my bmw power steering bottle. I replaced the oil after driving 200 km. Now its stiff at low speeds. Sometimes work perfectly and then almost nothing again. Anyone know what it...


Hi Theo, As you'll know water is non compressible. It is possible that the vanes in the steering pump have been damaged. Check The steering rack for signs of leakage. if the integrity of all the units are still good, disconnect the return pipe to the reservoir and place over an open container to catch expelled fluid. have a friend start up the engine and as the fluid is expelled refill with new fluid until fluid is clean and all signs of contamination have been expelled. Stop engine and reconnect the return pipe. Make sure fluid level is correct (Check with engine running). To bleed system turn steering wheel to right full lock and hold for no longer than four seconds and then repeat for left full lock. Keep repeating until steering feels normal and the sound of the pump has become so low as to be unnoticed. Don't put water there again! Regards John

Power steering is stiff on 2000 jimmy 4wd and steering is hard control in shelter belts when windy


First check power steering fluid level and if its full then most likely the power rack and pinion will need to be replaced.

Error code P1624 on 1999 BMW 528i series. Most of the answer post advise this may be the thermostate getting stuck especially on the 300 series. Would this be the same for the mines.


Absolutely a thermostat malfunction, it seems to be a common issue.Change it out and your troubles should be gone.You can also test it in boiling water to see if it opens at the temp stamped on the thermostat

I have the check engine code 1624 on my 2000 BMW 323i. What does it mean?


P1624- Pedal Position Sensor Potentiometer Supply Channel 1 Electrical.
The Siemens MSE43.0 Engine mamagement module is used on more than one model. The different meanings of the P1624 are based on your model.

The P1624 referenced here is for the MS43.0 engine management module with a note for M52 engines (323 / 328) that it is a coolant temperature below thermostat regulating temperature. You should have a M52 engine.

The MS42.0 engine mangement does not list a P1624 code in the Bentley manual.

The fault above cold be set due to the following:· Break/open in the wiring from the DME to the throttle motor(MDK).· The actuator or potentiometers inside the MDK could be contaminated.SOLUTION:
(If any of the faults listed are set) · Using a breakout box check for an open or short to ground in the wiring from the DME to the MDK.· If the wiring is intact then replace the MDK, then the adaptation values in the DME must be
cleared. Failure to do this will result in reoccurring faults.· Switch the ignition off for 30 seconds.· Turn on the ignition and delete the DME adaptations and the fault code
memory · Press the accelerator pedal to wide open throttle(WOT)4 times
MDK- motor driven throttle valve.

Steering


I have researched this issue and it seems the problem may be the power steering pump, it seems it causes these kinds of loose of power assist and the resulting stiff/hard steering effort, the 1st thing to do is have the fluid checked in the pump, is it full? does it look discolored? if it is low you have a leak, if it is discolored or smells burnt then you may have steering rack issues as well, on occasion a flush of the fluid will help, many shops will flush the power steering for you at a reasonable cost compared to parts like the steering rack and pinion and the steering pump.
