The trick with these sellers are that they would say the warranty does not cover wear and tear and they will say this is not under cover,this is a typical trick they use in the UK to catch poor victims.Look for a cheaper labour as this is just a joke to have it repaired at a garage for this cost.Hydrualics is to do with power steering etc and this is an important part for this vehicle to function properly.Get in touch and if you are local I can help you.

My 1984 bmw 325e DASH BOARD LIGHTS dont work


Check a couple things:

1. Verify that the dimmer switch for the dash lights isn't in the full dim position (it turns off the dash lights).

2. Check your fuse panel (in the engine compartment) for a blown fuse.

Hi. I own a bmw 1 series wgich is 3.5 yrs old and less than 35000 driven. Some warning light came up on my dash board and i went to a BMW dealer only to find out that the hydraulics of my car had failed...


I would take the car to a private garage and have them check out this problem.If it is a BMW fault then you should not have to pay for anything.if Its a manifacture fault.

I have the same fault , that has just occured out of the blue only 38,000 on clock.

Hand brake light wont go out


this sounds like the brake pads may have worn down and the sensors have lit the warning light on the dash, check the brake pads and if the thickness of the pad is at about 3mm then a new set of pads and sensor will be required

Pc board


This solution may be too late but will help others with same problem.
The E30 series have 2 rechargeable batteries on the (Service Indicator) SI board WHEN FITTED. located within the dash unit ( tacho/speedo/temp/fuel Unit) they have a life span of 6 years however mine lasted 17years not bad for a rechargeable batt
anyway back to the point the effects of a buggered batts are
  • Inconsistent taco and temp guages
  • background radio noise (old model radios)
  • and THE INABILITY TO TURN SERVICE LIGHTS OFF !
The batts can be found in CONRAD (germany) MAPLIN (uk)
the cos of the batts are approx £3
the new board costs direct from BMW with trade discount approx £200 in 2007
have fun (soldering required to replace batts) :-]
