    Hi Everyone, I have two issues happening with my X5 that I hope end up as easy fixes. I just had a mechanic put in a new sensor because the left rear sensor which controls the speedometer was intermittently working. After the new sensor it stopped working all together. Today the self leveling...

    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...

    Well the history on this old 7. Got it in 2010 from a guy who claimed nothing major was wrong with the car. had an electrical issue that keeps draining the battery. Still have not been able to fix that issue. Main problem. About two years ago i got it brand new tires. in the process they broke...

    Greetings everyone! I am a new e39 owner (540iA) and my instrument cluster is not working properly. When I turn the car on, the fuel gauge will jump around a bit, the tachometer will jump up a bit, then slowly flick back down, and the speedometer won't read. I have heard the fix about the wheel...

    Hello All, I purchased a 2001 e53 4.4 at a nice discount with 138k miles. The only catch, no working speedometer. OBD scanner throws a speed sensor error. I assumed that it would be easy to fix, but I am starting to doubt that. Here are all of the issues that I suspect are related with this...

    I have an '01 330ciC with an inconsistent problem. The instrument cluster will be fine when I start the car and drive it in the morning, then after driving 2-10-15-20 miles (inconsistent), the speedo starts jumping and eventually drops to zero. The odometer will follow what the speedo is doing...

    With all the confusion around the different problems with the speedometer problems, I'd thought I'd burden/entertain you lot with my wild goose chase. My car. 1997 e36 m3 evo On the dash the speedo does not work, I have the abs light on. Nothing else. I'll start with the clocks. Fuel gauge...

    My 1998 540i-6 won't start but speedometer slowly increases to 130mph while I sit in frustration with ignition on. (Can I add the 130mph to the thread about how fast I have gone in my car?) My diagnostic tool gives me a code of "E" then "06" "6d" which are not codes in manual which came with...

    I have a 99 528i and the speedo doesn't work all of the time. I took some advice from the forum, and replaced the lr speed sensor, it worked great for about 75 miles, but the abs, trac control light was still on. What should I do next?? Thanks, Tim
