Question about 1997 BMW Z3 Roadster

1 Answer

Wont Start We purchased a 1997 BMW Z3 roadster at an auction. We can't get it started. It is getting spark, and gas. We have checked the fuses. The stereo was stolen and I dont know if that has anything to do with it. Could that effect the wiring somehow.

Could be the immobiliser.  Do you have the original keys?  If your key does not have a remote unlock, it's likely to be a "spare" key, which doesn't have an immobiliser chip in it.  If you take your VIN to your dealer, they can get you a new key - at a cost.  I've been quoted over $400 to have a key replaced.
Hope this helps.

If you just got gas, check your gas cap is closed tightly. If it isn't it can't pressurize correctly.

I HAVE A 1999 BMW Z3 ROADSTER. IT HAS A HALF TANK OF GAS AND SOUNDS LIKE THE FUEL PUMP IS ON WHEN YOU OPEN THE IGNITION. WHEN I TRY TO START IT, IT CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START. WHAT ELSE COULD BE THE...


if you can heard the fuel pump noise and sure that you have enough fuel, then it may be you have a problem with ignition system or faulty crankshaft sensor.

There are backlight bulbs on the backside of the instr. cluster, they could be burnt out. There is also a small chance of a problem with the headlamp switch, but doubtful.

Retracting mirrors on 1997 Z3 Roadster


No.
To move them, remove the trim on the inside, and remove the 3 nuts that hold the mirrors on.
You said the key word....force. They are not designed to fold in.
And at $250.00 (at least) each (that's unpainted) I don't think you want to replace them unless you have to.
