My 1984 bmw 325e DASH BOARD LIGHTS dont work


Check a couple things:

1. Verify that the dimmer switch for the dash lights isn't in the full dim position (it turns off the dash lights).

2. Check your fuse panel (in the engine compartment) for a blown fuse.

Battery drains in my 1984 BMW 318i


I have the same car I had the same problem.If you have the correct battery for your car with the same problem you have a short or positive ground in your dash/electric fuel pump/fuse box also be carefull of how you take the key from the ignition and if they're old replace them.

Guages malfunctioning


This problem maybe solved a couple ways. The first, (and cheapest) is check all your fuses. BMW's sometimes have multiple fuse boxes. In the dashboard behind the clove compartment, under the driver's side or passenger's side dash( near your knees or sides of your calfs), and in the engine compartment under the hood. Fuses are relatively cheap if you do it yourself and are available at nearly all auto parts stores and many WAL*MART'S or TARGET'S.

If you've checked all the fuses with either a fuse checker (about $5 at an auto parts store) or by pulling out and checking each fuse visually (making sure to be very careful not to touch the contacts or not getting shocked by disconnecting the positive battery cable very carefully), another problem may be in your ECU (the car's computer or brains).

If the fuses are fine, I'd take it to a dealer to have them look at the ECU, it is one of those parts that you can't really diagnose yourself with out the right software and computer connections (very expencive tools, around $500-$3,000 each) but many local mechanic shops and all BMW dealers will have these tools.

First check the fuses. If you have trouble finding the fuse boxes, look in the owner's manuals.

I hope I could help you fix the problem.
