1997 bmw 328i ignition lock just spins around, i need the tumbler fixed. are there other bmw years that are interchangeable? I don't mind using two keys, one for ignition or one for doors. I don't care...


There is nothing wrong with the lock,,,it is suppose 2 spin around if you do not put the key in correctly.

My 1997 bmw does the same , it is a security measure incase someone breaks into the car and tries 2 steal it by putting a screwdriver in the ignition ,,it just spins.

before putting yr key in the ignition, move yr steering wheel slighty so its not resting on the steering lock , put yr key in and turn , it does not spin

Assuming everything is working properly,where should the needle on my temp gauge be under normal driving conditions?1996 bmw 328i


I would say no more than 210 F, Say you have a thermostat listed at 185, or 195, they open up at that temp, the engine under normal driving will run between 195 and 210, you really don't want to see 250. even though coolant boils at 265+, in a pressurized unit, and some cars are supposed to run that hot, I don't like the idea. Hope this helps.

My 97 328i is making a loud noise & half the electrical is off


the loud noise is most likely to be a belt tensioner bearing or alternator bearing you must isolate the sound,as for the lights check your fuses and gauge cluster wire harness sometimes unplugging them gives them better connection. hope this helps you.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHERE IS ALL THE FUSES LOCATED ON A BMW 328I


I don't know what year you own but on the 1999 BMW 328i it is inside the glove box. up on top, there are two white tabs that must be turned and the top will flip down reveiling the fuses.

The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.
