    So the other day I was i driving and noticed my battery light, abs, brake light, and the other one came on and shortly after that the gear with the exclamation point inside appeared. I pulled over and examined shit and disconnected my stereo system. The car fired right up. I drive up the...

    Today I changed my Crankshaft Sensor with a brand new VDO sensor, I don't have a voltmeter so I couldn't check if it was faulty. I changed the sensor due to the P0335 code and of course the no start ( as shown here ). But I also had the P0700 code show up as well and that scared me. Again today...

    On my '03 325ci tonight my car cranked for just a second then the car cut the crank and all i heard was the fuel pump. I turned the key back off and then on again and the car started right up. I feel like its probably my crank sensor going bad but my question is if the crank sensor is going bad...

    Hey all! I have been getting issues with my 01 330ci manual (Swapped from an auto) for quite some time now. I'm gonna have to keep it reasonably short. My car won't start, as the title implies, I get a crank but no start. Sometimes it will, but over time my chances of it starting have...

    Can someone please give me a step-by-step for re-aligning the EWS with the DME on MS42? I want to virginize the DME, make it work in my 328, then once start is confirmed, I'm going to custom tune from there. Well, DME is flashed with virginized BIN file, from the Wiki page, and now when i try...

    Found myself switching vehicles the other day as I needed to get to the airport. My 330Ci (automatic) wouldn't start... Car ran fine on Friday night then it sat until I needed it on Sunday afternoon. Turned the ignition key and got the typical whirrs and clicks and full dash power but only a...

    This morning I stopped for coffee, and when I returned to the car and turned the key, the starter didn't respond at all. Dash was fully illuminated, radio worked, and good voltage, it was as though the ignition was not connected to the starter circuit. I pop-started it - take that...

    Hi all, I've done plenty of searching, but I've failed to find someone with the exact same situation as me. Basically, one day, shortly after a cooling system rebuild, the car was unusually hard to start. It took two tries to get it to fire up. I thought nothing of it and proceeded. Later...

    E46 fanatics, I am desperately in need of help. I drove my 02 330i to work and I noticed, it wanted to die for a brief second but still stayed alive. Everything was fine, the car was still running until I parked and turned it off. Once I came back to the car to start it, the engine would crank...

    This morning, I sent my brother to go grab spark plugs for our 2004 325xi. We swapped them following a tutorial step by step (I've also done the same procedure on another E46 with no problems) Long story short turns out we didn't have the correct plugs. What made me realize this was the fact...

    Hi all So I have been having some issues w my 2004 BMW 325ci TL;Dr I replaced a fuel pump and expansion tank. I tried to start the car with the maf and air box disconnected. Resulting in a no start/crank. It started when the car stalled and started back up after a few turns. A couple days...
  16. E46 M3
    Hey guys this is my first post here on the forums. However not my first time being on here. A few months back I bought a 2002 e46 M3 SMG with 94K miles on it. It had been serviced by BMW throughout it's entire life and had carfax reports to back it up. I payed $13,995 for it which seemed...

    Hello members, I'm a newb and trying to diagnose a NO CRANK NO START issue with my gf's 05 325i. I changed out the CCV due to a leak and cracked hoses and now all I hear is a click when trying to start. I've double checked all connections (actually took everything apart except for ccv and...

    My 01 325I has an issue starting sometimes. I will turn the key over to start the vehicle and it makes a weird vacuum noise when it should be turning over. It will do it once or twice and then it will start fine. Just recently I was driving and my car downshifted kind of hard then my dsc...
