Question about 1992 BMW 3 Series

Beeping with no warning lights

Hi
I have over the past week had my 320i 1992 BMW E36 beep at me for no apparent reason. It happens when Ive just started driving, 3 loud beeps from the right hand side of the dashboard sound like its coming from where the light switch is. What can this be ?? There is nothing on the OBC and no warning lights or anything.

    I have noticed that on my 2008 535xi and I observed that when the clock changes to 4:59 to 5:00 it does 3 dinging noises. right now I can say that is all I hve noticed. However mine went crzy on me tihis am and is at the shop whcih I am sure will cost me a house . It started doing everything on the ashboard it oculd possible do. I am not sure why it is doing hat it did other then it might jsut need to be reset on the computer. It was actong like it was possessed. The speddometer stopped working and all. I thought that I could get an answer to my question however, it took me here.

Hi,

Based on some readings, the beeping sound indicates cold outside temperature. If that is not the case, then the sensor located behind the front bumper has its connector detached or may be faulty. Of course the owner's manual could provide more details.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Usually beeping noise is associated with warning signs (to make the driver notice)....so perhaps the electrical connection got shorted somehow cuz of dirt or water.....i think you should have the electrical wiring checked at the service shop...

I'm not sure about the BMW, But most cars I've done is to turn on the ignition, push the gas pedal slowly down to the floor three times within five seconds. And this will reset the oil light. Good luck

Heya, i got a E36 320i auto coupe. its not overheating standing, but its red hot after driving it a mile


this sounds like a water blockage, take off the water hose that goes to the engine block, start the engine, and see if there is water flow going to engine...if this is the problem, then you need to buy an engine flush fluid, and flush out your engine....please be carefull, as the E36 320i, has an aluminium head, and is easily warped by heat
