You said the starter works rt I would suggest pulling your alternator and get it checked at autozone. Take a look at your battery as well a bad alternator will allow the battery to drain

Wont start 318is


Check that your ICV ( idle control Valve) is actually alive. This is what used to happen with mine. It is located right below the throttle flap, you will see a hose going to it. Quick fix: adjust the throttle cable a tiny bit, so you have more revs and engine doesn't shut off easily. Wish you all the best!

Battery needle has been moving around alot. Check engine light went on this morning. Tonight it started fine but rolled over hard. Went to do a 'check start' in the drive way and got some flicking and it...


a auto parts store can test your battery for free there machine will put the batter under a charge then do a few different load tests to see how it performs. i would also check the battery cables and clean them also check you fan belts for wear and tear.

BMW 318iSE (1999) engine warning light


That sounds like you bought big problems. Oil ights indicate low oil pressure= BIG BUCKS. I would have a qualified repair shop check it out, A shop that specializes in BMW. If you are lucky, maybe the oil sender is just bad. They can also check out the Ck eng light. But the oil light is priority one.

Fuses no. 7 & 37 on my 318is K-reg Bmw keep MELTING.


you have to figure out where there is a short in your wiring--follow wires, look for broken, missing insulation--if it started in lights, look there first maybe. Also check the connections of plugs. Good luck it may take some searching.
