(??? I don't understand what this means)Having an issue with my 1997 740il.
Not getting power to the ignition where my cluster panel isn't displaying information to start vehicle.
(???I don't understand what this means)... I was told about a strap fuse, but where is it? I can't locate
May I ask for a different explanation or wording (if possible) of some of the things that have been written. They aren't making sense to me...and perhaps to others, too.What fuse/relay would send power to that portion of instrument.cluster to complete circuit?
When the oil pressure switch which is located on the passenger side front bottom of oil pan fails it blows fuse 22 under the hood and vehicle does not start due to DME being unable to read the gear selector switch which as the Mayor said is also served by Fuse 22, so if fuse 22 is good it's not the oil pressure switch.No fuse. Lights are handled by the Light Control Module but it's not a illumination issue. The DME is not getting the signal the car is in gear. Fuse 22 powers the selector/range/gear (pick a name) switch. You know, there has been a few of these that has been caused by the oil level sensor. It is on the same fuse/circuit. Unplugging it has resolved the issue. I believe it sits on top of the left side of the oil pan. It may or may not be causing the fuse to blow.
