The problem is in your dash. you are going to have to replace the battery in the instrument panel.
these will control the opening and closing of your thermostat. i bet that you are having issues with your tach and possibly fuel consumption. once you do this you are set.

Cause no heat temp gauge red lined in


sounds like the thermostat is stuck shut..unless the head gasket is blown somewhere.. it will pump the antifreeze level down to form an air pocket.. this will cause overheating constantly check each cylinder for even compression..the lowest reading will most likely be the blown cylinder..

Where is the location of a thermostat on a bmw


Follow the top hose off the radiator until it goes into the motor. THe housing where the hose connects to the motor is where the thermostat is. You'll need to remove the housing and pop the thermostat out. Make sure the old gasket is completely cleaned off before installing the new one.

Overheating


Have you tried the 8 mm bleeder screw on top of the thermostat housing? You may have air trapped behind your thermostat. Also, overheating can be caused by a collapsed lower radiator hose. If it's soft and you can squeeze it together, then under acceleration it closes down on itself thus preventing the flow of your coolant. Also check your radiator cap. It's supposed to be a 1.1 Bar cap but if it's not functioning correctly, by having to add coolant to the coolant reservoir bottle or the coolant overflow bottle overflowing, usually says it's the radiator cap. These are the simple fixes that you ,may have overlooked.

Good Luck,
