  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a BMW X3 E83 2007 2.0d, usually whenever I started the car I should be able to see the fuel level, right? But it began a while ago when I wanted to take out the car for a spin and at first the fuel gauge was on Empty, but after several minutes it went back to normal so I ignored it, this...
  2. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Just found out about the design of the fuel tank in my 2001 e38 740il while having the mechanic diagnose why she suddenly died on the highway with no warning. The misfire that preceded the shutdown made it seem like coil failure. To my surprise, I ran out of gas despite showing a quarter of a...
  3. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    My '03 Z4 has multiple electrical problems; no other issues so I think there may be some (obscure to me) common source. Initially it was the trunk release microswitch (won't respond to either fob or driver's side button), then the fuel gauge (reads only 1/2 tank when full), next the radio...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2 days ago my key stopped working and i read a bit about reprogramming it which i tried to no avail. So i read about checking the fuses so i started doing that stupidly with my engine running(i heard this was bad). One that i pulled out made the alarm(i think) beep loud and continuous until i...
  5. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey Board, I live in mid-atlantic (suburban DC), and its been cold as balls here -- down into the single digits at night, only into the teens during the day. Snow and ice are still on the ground. This morning, the fuel gauge on my '97 528i registered normal at start up, but quickly went down...
  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 325ci with 109k miles on it and recently i noticed that the car would show false info regarding to how much gas i have. Currently its showing i have a full tank and i am pretty sure it is around the 1/4 or under tank mark. I'm only 21 and not very car savvy.
  7. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi Everyone! I'm new here (kinda) my boyfriend and I have used this site for quite a while now. We both have BMW's and he is quite the auto mechanic for our vehicles. Every now and again he does come up against problems he cannot seems to fix on his own and thus here I am... It seems that all...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, I just got a 2004 318Ci M-Sport (very happy) but there is a problem with the fuel gauge. The tank is full but the dial doesn`t go above half way. It does go down with use but haven`t seen it go past half way yet. Console test 2 makes all the dials do a funny dance, so I hope I`m right to...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone! Thanks for the previous threads on fuel gauge problems. I wasn't able to find something quite similar enough to my problem, so I'm going to post a new thread. I have a 325i with the M54 engine. My car runs normally until I hit a quarter tank left, at which point it seems I have run...
