If it isn't leaking & the water pump is working, I'd replace the thermostat.
My 2002 Z3 had this problem, but it is cheap & easy to fix.
Good luck.

Thanks for the update. I'll go look at the differential again tomorrow, but the speedometer is still working today. Haven't been able to reproduce failure again.

Gone Now

Don't know what happened, but the problem has dematerialized.
Perhaps it was the onset of cold weather & dampness in the speedo cable.
Don't know, but we'll see if it repeats itself.
Thanks....

Don't give up your cigarette lighter plug so easily.
It is a power connection for your GPS or other things, like phones to recharge.

How about the wire bundle that is routed along the left trunk hinge. Mine flexed until it broke & I understand that this is a common problem.

When that happened to me several years ago on my 2002 Z3 roadster it turned out to be a short in the wiring in the trunk that ran along the left trunk hinge.

No Freon?

When there's no Freon, the compressor doesn't run. That's one possibility.
Check to see if the A/C switch is working too or if there's a fuse blown.

Good luck.

Have you held the key very close to the rear view mirror when pressing the key.
My 2002 has to have the key very near (a foot or two) for it to open the doors sometimes.
Worth a try if you haven't....

And one of the kids 5 inch round foam tubes cut to length. That way you're not likely to crack the window as it ages either.
