  1. 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...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    This morning as I was driving I noticed my MPG gauge was not working. Then I noticed the speedometer and gas meter stopped working. Then the RPM gauge. Then the odometer and the trip count. The lights and everything else still works. I took the cluster out the dash and unplugged it hopping it...
  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I've turned one problem into two... The fuel gauge would only indicate half full with a full tank. When I'd used half the gauge would indicate empty and the fuel light would come on. It was annoying, but but in retrospect I could have lived with it. I tried to test/diagnose it, involving...

    Hi, I recently ought a 2002 x5 4.4i with sports package. Recently the abs light, brake light, and a triangle in a circle (above odometer) turned on. The speedometer doesn't work either. Can someone give me advice on what could be the problem, how much it could cost to fix, etc? Thanks for the help!
  6. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    My 2011 528i, used to have white lighting during daytime for speedo and tach in instrument cluster and used to change to orange light during the night with head lights on. After the last software update at dealership, now there is no backlight during day and during night it changes to orange. Is...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey board, My odometer and trip meter stopped counting correctly; they're counting slowly. Relatedly, I think, a few days ago, the speedo went out. I know the speedo is a wheel sensor gone bad. Is the odometer situation related? Is it the same sensor (R/R)? Should I just replace all four...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2003 525i Sport 5 speed with about 98,000 miles. The sport package included style 81 wheels. My speedometer is about 3.5% off - says I am going 80 mph and actually (according to GPS & iPhone Speedometer App) going 77 mph. I am in need of new tires and thinking of compensating for...
  9. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hello. I have a 1989 BMW 524td. I've read a number of posts about the diff speed sensor, so it seems likely that this is the problem I've seen over the past few days, especially as it is the original sensor. I do have some questions, however: The speedo needle temporarily drops down to zero -...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I live in Toronto Ontario Canada and I have a 2007 BMW 328i. I am planning to take a trip to the USA in the next couple weeks. I just realized My cluster only reads in KM/H. Is there any way to change it to Miles per hour for my trip?
  11. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I recently replaced my odometer gears this morning and reinstalled the instrumental panel in the same manner that I took it out. I took it for a test drive hoping to see the small rise in miles, but there was no change! I thought that I may have damaged the motor in the process of removing the...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So anytime it would rain, my ABS and traction lights would turn on for a few weeks. I changed my two front ABS sensors and the light would come on and off. Randomly, the light turned off, not sure if it is because the weather got warmer here in Chicago or what. Anyhow, today I swapped out the...
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Just got a new (to me) 91 325i convertible! I've already fallen in love but have my first issue: Just finished replacing the bulbs in my instrument cluster and now the speedometer seems "slow". I haven't had a chance to actually test how off it is but it also seems like the beginning point of...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I need some help locating what the problem may be? I have a 2004 545i and it only has 7,000 miles on it, I replaced the battery 7 or 8 months ago due to not driving it enough, so I kept a battery maintainer on it for several months with no problems, well 3 weeks ago I went to drive it and the...

    Hi All - I have a 2005 BMW 3 series and the speedometer is in KM/H and I want to change it to MPH. Any idea how I might go about doing that? Thanks, D
  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    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...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    CAN I RESET MY SPEEDOMETER to measure the correct SPEED with this BT tool? READ below for full story: I have been reading about the subject tool to help diagnose and reset error codes...like when you install a new battery. I also read where you can reset lighting quality, turn things...
