EGS: Ratio monitoring, gearshift 4-5/.

Gear ratios are monitored from the input and out shaft speed sensors. Takes a scanner to watch the speed signals. These sensors are magnetized. If to much metal collects on them, this could mess with the signal. Could be a bad wire or plug to the sensor. Reading the code is just the first step. Next comes diagnostics. Making sure everything on the outside of the transmission is doing what is supposed to do, then going inside it.

2003 BMW 325i. It stalls out at idle or when drive it just shuts off. Replaced PCV system and spark plugs and coils. Now what, same problem it's wearing out my starter?

Question edited for clarity. changed your Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) into Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV), and added some punctuation to make real sentences. Your car is run by computers, the computers have diagnostics and will tell you what's wrong. You can't guess faults like you have. A Professional Grade Scan Tool computer can diagnose all the computers, modules, sensors and systems in about 40 minutes. It can even record what happens and what goes wrong as you are driving! https://www.google.com/search?q=mobile+auto+electrician+near+me ..

2002 325 BMW remove back Panel to Replace Speaker

Here's what to do: 1. Use the pry tool to carefully pop up the window switch assembly from the door panel. Then, disconnect the wiring harness from the switch assembly. 2. Take out the two Phillips-head screws located under the armrest. 3. Use your pry tool to gently unclip the door panel from the door. Start at the bottom and work your way around the sides, being careful not to break the clips that hold the panel in place. 4. Lift the whole panel up to free it from the window sill. 5. Disconnect the wiring harnesses on the backside of the door panel by pressing the tabs and pulling the connectors apart. 6. Once the panel is off, you'll be able to see the speaker, which is held in place by screws. Take off these screws to free the speaker. 7. Disconnect the wiring harness from the speaker. 8. Connect the new speaker to the wiring harness and screw it into place. Then, put the door panel back on by reversing the steps above.

2008 BMW 328Xi. What is wrong with my car?

Sometimes disconnecting the battery can be an advantage, but sometimes it is the worst thing. Your vehicle is very complex computer-wise and now it has resets and relearning to do. Having said that, you have some underlying issue. You need an auto electrician with a professional grade scan tool computer to diagnose what it wrong. My guess is an ABS sensor error if by 'locked' you mean brake locked.. https://www.google.com/search?q=auto+electrician+near+me ..

How can I get the HDC to turn off in my 2002 bmw x5?

To turn off HDC on a BMW, all you have to do is press the HDC button located on the center console. The button will have an image of a vehicle going downhill with a speedometer above it, and you'll know it's off if there are no lights illuminated above it. If you ever want to turn the system on again, just press the button again.
