    Hey guys, so you probably know that the BMW speedometer doesn't show true GPS speed (if anyone can explain why that would be awesome as well) and I'd like to recode it to do so. I've been successful in adding the Digital speedo and programming it to show true GPS speed. However, the analog...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I recently purchased a 2001 530i. The trifecta of ABS lamps is on, as well as a check engine light, a dead speedometer, non fuctioning odometer (reads but does not advance mileage), and a fuel gauge that becomes very erractic when the tank drops below ¼. (needle swings from empty to half full...

    I recently had a rear diff seal change done on my F26 and after the work was completed my speedo had lost its accuracy. It can be anywhere from 10-50mph off and the speedo jumps at times as if it’s trying to find the gear? Have tried changing rear sensors and wheel bearings but no luck. Gave it...
  4. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    Originally I had an intermittent problem with this. But now the ABS, BRAKE, 4x4 LEDs seem to be on permanently and the speedometer in the dash is not moving at all. However when I hook up the OBD2 scanner it reads my speed just fine. Prior to the error lights being on all the time I used to be...
  5. 7 Series & 8 Series
    Okay, so here is my problem. The gas works fine, the temperature works fine, the odometer works as well but the speedometer doesn’t even move. I opened it up and saw that there was a sort of melted looking gear where the speedometer is and maybe that can be the problem? I would love your advice...

    Hey guys! I have an E39 525i automatic, made in 2001. I was checking something in the hidden menu in the instrument cluster. I was checking the voltage value. Then I exited the hidden menu. Since then my speedometer and L/100 km consumption gauges are not working. If I go back to the hidden...

    Hello, On bmw e60 530i 2004 I got "Speedometer display malfunction" error showing up every time I start ignition and my digital speedometer always shows some number like 10-20km/h even car not moving. I suspect that this affect my fuel consumption numbers. What I hate tried to update DATEN...
  8. General BMW Questions
    This topic has been touched upon before, but not quite the way I'm asking the question today. The ultimate question happens to overlap with my educational, and former professional expertise, so I've given this serious thought. 1) Not long ago, the speedometer reading was set by a gear in the...

    Hello All, I got this weird electrical problem going on this morning. The Tachometer and speedometer were wayy off. the Tach would rise as if I was driving in first gear (rapidly) and the speedometer read I was going 60mph but I was only going about 15mph then it got stuck there then backed...
  11. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    Hi, helpful folks. The speedometer and odometer are out on my 1985 535i. As a starting point, I want to replace the sender. The info I've found online and in Bentley is confusing: some say the sender is in the differential, and others refer to the "speed sensor" in the transmission housing...
  12. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Am having intermittent squeals from the drive motors in my instrument cluster. The information is correct so far but just noisy! I also had a GMC Suburban several years ago with the same problem and sent off the cluster and had all replaced and returned in 2 days for $100! Is there someplace...

  14. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    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...

This white paint speck on the 25kph mark on my speedometer was bothering me since i got the car a month ago. i cleaned the area and it is not on the plastic covering. Dealer hasn't replied...

    Hi everyone. Starting to bang my head against the wall... harder than usual. About a month ago I went to drive my 1987 325. I don't drive it all that often, maybe 5k miles a year or so. It has 80,xxx miles. As I was driving I noticed the speedo, odometer and econometer were not working. The...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey there, I have an obvious instrument cluster problem. I have an e36 1996 318i. My speedometer, odometer, temperature, fuel, and mpg gauges are not working at all. They're all at zero, car running or not. They were working fine until I did some work in the door. Here's the sequence of events...

    Please help... I have been driving with no problems until last week, when suddenly I got the message "Speedometer Display Fault". Suddenly my rev counter, fuel guage and MPG guage all went to Zero, and stayed there My speedometer however appeared to work correctly showing my speed. My Cruise...
  20. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    What is the largest diameter tire I can put on my x5. I want to make my truck a more capable off-roader. Since a lift doesn't seem like an option I feel like the only direction I can go are A/T tires. At the moment I have 255/55/18's could I get 255/70/18's and throw them on my truck? Im...
