Question about BMW Vehicle Parts & Accessories

Open Question

I have got a bmw 3.18 E36 and a couple of days ago I did some work and disconnected my battery. When I reconnected the battery and wanted to disable the alarm, my left indicator kept burning. I think it is a relay under my dashboard, but when I tried to check the relay, I saw that the whole system is in a black box and this is sealed. So now I need to know if I need to replace the whole system or if there is another solution.

SOURCE: Car alarm won't reset after disconnecting car battery

you should try to hit the unlock button on the remotes and that should disarm it. Try disarming that, that way and if that doesnt work we will go from there

SOURCE: 1999 jeep grand cherokee will not start because of alarm

Sounds like the brain quit on you, I would uninstall it or completly disconnect it and have it looked at. Make sure you reconnect the factory wires and start over. Also check the ground for the alarm as it will draw current from what ever wire it can and cause all kinds of things.

Bmw 735 li e65 change battery and i get many problem no value to set clock radio not working cd also i disconnect the battery still the same problem


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your BMW service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

The airbag light on our 97 bmw came on a couple days ago and won't go out


1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

Engine wont start, BCM just replaced, inflatable restraint and check engine light on.


need to start with do you have any obd code with key turned on
caddy is more complex system than most , check fully charged battery, and not a jump start, and battery is in very good condition .disconnecting battery would only clear codes leaving you with nothing to go on hopes this is some help to you.

Bmw e36 325is. I have put stop leak at the radiator couple of months ago no prob. At all. But now coolant is coming out the cap and the car over heats but really slow and never goes more than just over the...


Sounds like a stuck thermostat, if both hoses are warm to the touch evenly, then the thermo is doing ok, possibly sticks once in a while. You might want to flush the system, if you are using stop leak, you have a problem that now needs attention.

BMW E36 AIRBA LIGHT IS ON HOW DO I RESET IT


there are dozens and dozens of little things in the system that can trip the light, the most common is the seat belt buckle sensor. also included in the seat belt buckle componentry is the tensioner, and maybe a couple of other related things (don't remember off the top of my head). but replacing the buckle involves replacing the entire tensioner unit anyway because they are conjoined. other things could be doing work on the steering wheel or passenger side dash without first disconnecting battery, or removing seats. i've tripped my light by removing the seats and removing the passenger airbag cover with the battery still on.

Bmw e36 immobilised, iginition lights come on, but the starter wont turn over. how do i start the car to get it to a garage, i dont wont to pay the £70 for recovery truck


BMW E36 immobilizer Hope the following will help. Had similar problems. The transmitter buttons on keys is for central locking and alarm. Inside the key at the front there is a small electronic/magnetic chip that looks like a block. About 8mm long, 2mm deep and 4mm wide, not connected to any pc board. This is the immobilizer. It must match the receiver that is located behind the ignition switch. If it is loose and too far away from the receiver it won?t deactivate it. If you made a spare key it will switch on electrics but won?t start the car. If you don?t have an immobilizer chip any alarm shop will be able to program a new chip or install a new pair for your keys. There is a way to disable the immobilizer but rather have it fix and protect your car. I read an article somewhere (perhaps bmw e36 blog) of people removing this immobilizer. Good luck
