Question about 1996 BMW 318

Open Question

I am also having trouble with all the dashboard, radio and climate control info not showing up

I had a similar problem with a 1997 BMW 540i, and disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes solved the problem. I tried something similar this time, but not happy results. Ideas, suggestions?

SOURCE: 2003 BMW 325xi won't start, dashboard and radio go on.

My 2003 325xi died on the highway a few weeks ago, and I thought it was the battery. It turned out to be the alternator, which was an expensive problem to repair. If your battery is new, it could be the alternator, or a problem with the electrical system. I find the BMWs to be too complicated electrically, which often leads to problems! I'd check your alternator...

I have a BMW 528i 1997. Last night, the battery light came on, followed by the traction control light, then the ABS, and finally the brake light. It went on for a few minutes then the dashboard started...


I had a BMW 540i 2000 and that happen to me, my advice is to get the battery out of the car and recharge it. It would be advisable to have it check for malfunctioning. If it is ok, put it back on and the car will start. If not good, put a new battery, the car will start and all the lights will work in order.

Probably you could loos your radio set up and clock set up if you took too much time in the replacement of the battery, don't worry, reset the clock and the radio stations.

The break light is on


540i bmw 2000
The brake light on the dashboard will come on if the brake fluid is low. This can be caused by
brake/shoe/pad/rotor wearing down i.e you need to do a brake job.

Cd changer


Look in the back where the cd changer used to be if there are any loose wires make sure that they are not touching, If there arent any wires touching, Check the fuse box and see if the radio fuse has blown.
