This is an anti-slip regulator control cutting in telling you have wheel slippage, and its in teh process of stopping the wheel from spinning, or you have the manual override on.

Check your trunk luggage latch. If it is not in the right position, the top won't go down...

SOURCE: 1999 BMW 323i Will not start

Its not worth 3,000 if it won't start, not a 3 series. MAYBE give him 1500- no start problems are very hard to diagnose in these cars.

Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
Good luck...i hope this helps,

How do i replace a blower motor in a 1999 bmw 323i convertible?


Hi JT. The blower can be accessed from under the hood. The plastic grille trim piece must be removed. There is a panel held to the firewall with 4 screws that comes off. The wiring harness in that area needs moved out of the way and the plastic engine covers come out of the way. The blower motor has a plastic cover held in place with small springs clips. The clips are easy to drop so be careful. The blower motor wheels must be removed and installed in the car. It is not possible to install or remove the motor with the wheels on it. It sometimes also helps to put the wipers in the vertical position.

BMW roof is stuck closed with only one latch hooked!


There is a compartment on the top center of the windshield. This contains a bolt that released the latches that lock the top to the windshield. It takes an allen wrench to unwind the roof latch and it takes an infinite amount of turns.

How can i get bmw 323i convertible top down manualy


If your top is electric then you will need to release the front cowl motors at the center point of the trim in front of the rear view mirror(small access plug needs to be removed and allen key inserted to drive unit.) You also need to pull the release handle under the back seat bottom(driver's side) The release handle detaches the drive units for the storage lid cover and the convertible top drive. Once the motors are released, the front of the top must be lifted approximately 6 inches and the pressure against the rear of the top will relax. raise the rear bow, open the storage lid, lower the rear bow and push the front of the top up and toward the back of the car. The top should fold into the storage area. Once in, close the storage lid until it clicks.

I changed the key batteries for my 1999 BMW 323i after they died. Afterwards the remote unlock and lock won't work, the car also won't start but it can turn over/on and the radio and the lights...


stick the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position, remove it within 5 seconds, then hold the unlock button down and press the lock button 3 times within 10 seconds and release both buttons. The doors should lock/unlock to give you confirmation and your key should work.

I have a 1999 323i bmw and the convertable top doesnt work the light is blinking and i dont know how to check if the motors work what wires do i hook it up to and how can i test everything else


i had the same problem with my 1998 bmw 323i and right under the back drivers seat there is an emergency convertible top lever with a orange tip on it. i removed my back seat to make it easier. when you pull that lever, you will hear a bang sound. that is the sound of the motors disengaging.(there are 3 top motors in the trunk by the left side panel when you remove it) you will then have full access of movement to either put the top up or down. But before you do any of this, i Really suggest you watch this youtube video. if this link doesnt work, you can go to youtube.com and type in bmw convertible top motor stuck and click on the first link BMW DIY #3 E36 Top Repair. I suggest watching the whole video first before attempting or if you want, you can have a mechanic do it! hope this helps
