    Hi Everyone My 1997 328i Manual instrument cluster is acting up, the rev counter being the culprit. The car has a 240km/h cluster, but without the coding plug. I can get hold an older 260km/h 6-cylinder cluster to replace it with. So the question is (assuming the 260 cluster works fine): Can I...
  2. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hey everyone, I have a 2005 X3. When i purchased it (used), it was running smoothly. Shortly after I noticed that it was not running as smoothly - it felt very rough underfoot, the tachometer was sitting very high and then drop right down to the bottom, the shifting pattern seemed off, had a...
  3. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    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...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My tachometer surges what would cause this it's mainly whenever I'm trying to maintain speed not any other time it does it pretty much every time I drive my car
  5. E90/E92/E93 M3 (2008 - 2014)
    I want to race my 2008 E92 M3 but the tacho is too hard to read when you can only glance at it. Is it possible to retrofit a separate tacho or change lights.
  6. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi all - Brand new to the forum...yadda yadda... :thumbup: I'm in the market for an E30 and been doing my research on the various models and waiting for the "right one" to jump on. I'm looking at a 1988 325 eta, I believe it's the "super eta" based on that fact it has the 2.5L cylinder head...
  7. BMW Coding and Programming
    The thickened sentences are the main problems, jump to that if you don't want to read the whole story. I tried to code my f56 in a workshop hoping to enable the JCW tachometer in HUD. Here's the thread I reference. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=881981 The workshop uses a...

    Hi, New to the forums. I have owned many BMW's over the years (26 to be exact), but I am on my first classic and it has been a couple of years since I have had a project car. I am looking for advice as to where to start on getting my instruments for my 1987 E30 convertable working properly...

    My car: 524 Turbo Diesel (European model) Year: 1989 (Sept.) Manual transmission Hello, and since I've not been here since last year - Happy New Year 2016 to everybody! I've looked around the net for info on the tach but couldn't find anything really satisfactory and a lot of it was about...
  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi I'm Joaquin, I live in Chile, so I can't order my BMW, you can just buy the ones that are on exhibition, the thing is: I wan't to upgrade my audio system, I only have the standard one ( not the Hi-Fi), but based on what I've search there's no alpine audio kit retrofit yet. And the second...
  11. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    2001 Z3 Roadster, 84000 miles. The tach will occasionally not register RPM. However, in the zero situation, when I downshift (Steptronic), the needle will jump quickly to 5000 RPM, then back to zero. Info is not getting to the tach. Anyone suggest a solution?
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    My brand new 328i coupe has a weird problem that occurs when idling, but only during the first 3-7 minutes after the initial start of the day. When sitting at a stoplight right after beginning the first drive of each day, the tachometer starts fluctuating between 600-1000 RPM and the car starts...
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had this problem. I just bought a 318i (1985) and the instrument cluster isnt working. The gas guage, tachometer, speed, nothing works. Has anyone had this problem and if so, how did you fix it? :cry:
