Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
The speedo on my 1999 5 series BMW will sometimes drop to zero whilst the car is in transit.Sometimes it will not even register when I start it up.Coupled with this is the mpg gauge which does exactly the same.Also the on board comp.which tells you how many miles you have left in your tank is all over the place..18....37.....114........3...etc.At the same time the fuel gauge is constantly dropping and rising again.Also the wipers do not do any more than work on intermittent except when I put them on top speed where they slowly wipe from side to side.This all happens together and I can usually tell as the music on the stereo drops in volume at exactly the same time as all the gauges fail.As I said before,this can happen from start up or after I've been travelling for 10 or 15 mins.Any help at all would be gratefully received.Thanks in advance,James.
Check the speed sensor on the gear box or it will be inside the cluster.
