Did you recently add Freon in your AC system? You might have too much Freon in the system, which caused the AC compressor to recycle more frequent than normal. Or you might not have enough Freon in the system. These BMW's are very AC system are very finicky. Get an AC gauge and check the level (high side & Low side) pressure.

SOURCE: How do i replace the blower resistor on my 1996 BMW 318ti?

If you have a right hander it's on the passenger side.....or when you're sitting in the car, the left hand side.....Remove the side panel from under the dash.....That will uncover the center located heat exchange unit.....Look very close to the fire wall....Thats the plating separating the engine from the cabin.....What you're looking for, is a small unit which is fitted into the housing at the angled corner of the unit.....If memory serves, it's fitted in with a tongue at one side and a screw on the other....The electrical connection will guide you to the unit.....

keep cool....or warm

SOURCE: Wiring stereo 1995 BMW 318Ti

HI, you do not need a wiring diagram, do you have a stereo already installed, if it is factory it is probably a baupunkt or a pioneer, although no bmw came with a radio as standard years ago, they where all fitted at the dealers. check for your constant positive with your meter. then find the ignition positive, ie.only on with the ignition, the constant keeps all your programmed channels. earth noemally brown on a bmw. but live in you're house!! green with a yellow tracer or line in your house is earth. then the feed to the electric aerial if you have one, if not forget about it, i think it is grey? then you just need your speakers, they are normally on a totally different plug, if you have 2 plugs thet are din plugs, or deutsch industrie norm. or in english german standard normal. It is a set size or measuremeent, din radio will basically fit into that size of hole in a dashboard.the speakers are normally gery with a black tracer, white with a black racer etc. if you touch these and do not get a shock they are speaker wires, ...only joking, you cannot get a shock from any of them..It should be easy enough to swap over especcially if you are just upgrading to anothr radio. just undoo each speaker with the stereo on to see where thet are located in the car, you cannot do to much damage. if the wires are say grey and grey with a black tracer, if you wire them up black and then grey with black tracer the wrong way around , they will still work, its not like putting the positive to the earth etc, on the radio.I doubt if there is actually a wiring diagram for basic bmw models, except for the 7 series top of the line, in the 80's the radio case for it to fit into was not even in the top of the range 5 series, we had to fit them in, the latest 3 series which had it in the dash came in from germany with a big plastic plate where the radio should be, datsun started fitting radios,as standard roll on nissan....

SOURCE: locked 318ti bmw in boot

go to your local BMW dealer with proof of ownership (registration document) and photographic proof of ID and they can order you a new key from BMW this will get you into the car as long as at least 1 door lock or the boot has the original lock.

Sounds like a type of neutral safety switch or Brake pedal lock pin switch.

Being a Bimmer, I would see a certified Service tech on this. The German engineering is a bit different than many domestics.
