    General E46 Forum
    Hey everyone I have been searching the threads forever and cannot find anything. I have a 323ci with 180 thousand miles on it. Sometimes the car will not engage into reverse, most of the time it will but sometimes not (say 15% of the time). Im also am having troubles with the car having a very...
  2. Genuine BMW E46 Reversing camera

    General E46 Forum
    Is the genuine BMW E46 reversing camera kit available anymore? Mine has stopped working. The TV works fine but no camera when i engage reverse. There is little control box box that comes with the kit besides the actual camera itself. What does this do ? Is it available separately?
  3. No Backup Lights - 12 volts but no current

    Lighting Forum
    The backup lights are not working on my 323ci. Using a voltmeter I can measure 12v when the car is put in reverse, but when I put a bulb in the socket the voltage drops and it does not light up. I checked the brown wire and is well grounded. The fuse is good. I am suspecting a failed channel in...
  4. Tranny questions

    General E46 Forum
    Gentlemen.....I have read over many posts on here but this is my first. My son has the zf 5hp-19 in his 323ci 2000. It has very little reverse. It does back up but with any gas the rpm s go up. I can't get under the little Beamer and do not have the smarts to take it out. I believe it is the D...

    General E46 Forum
    After months of being stuck on my drive with no reverse gear finding the money for the repair (£1920 transmission overhaul with Bristol Transmissions) I finally have my 330ci back on the road. Had to have it winched off my near vertical drive where back in September the reverse gear finally gave...

    My inner rear brake lights (on trunk lid) and reverse lights DO NOT working. My license plate lights and electric trunk release DO work. My dashboard does display the "rear brake light malfunction" indicator and has since before the brake light recall was completed. I have already replaced...
  9. ZF5HP19 problems after replacing reverse drum. YES, I searched first.

    General E46 Forum
    Greetings all! TL;DR - came to shop with no reverse, replaced the drum ONLY, now has several codes and goes into limp after trying for 3rd gear. Also replaced a rectangular section sealing ring with silicon because my boss and the customer have less knowledge than money they're willing to...

  11. License Plate Backup Camera Help!

    General E46 Forum
    Decided to run a camera for my Dynavin, but I just don't understand how to tap the wires into the old license plate light. How do remove the wires from the grey bracket? Or is the only thing you can do is cut the wires? If cutting them is the only thing you can do, can you buy more of these...
  12. Backup Camera Wiring Help

    General E46 Forum
    Can't really find a definitive answer. I understand the idea and where to run the wires to, but how do you remove the wires from the rear license plate light housing? I don't want to snip them, just in case I want to go back to OEM, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to remove the...
  13. Wont engage reverse

    General E46 Forum
    quick Q, I have a ZF 5 speed that is out of the car, (nothing hooked up to it except the shifter) and I was wondering if I should be able to shift it into reverse. I can feel all 5 gears but it wont engage reverse. It feels like something is blocking me from moving it all the way to the left...
  14. Caution buying EBAY Cameras that claim to fit E46

    General E46 Forum
    Rear / Reverse Camera Challenge: I've bought a Camera that specifically stated it fit my 2001 E46 sedan, yet...it was too wide, requiring me to cut my trunk handle for it to fit. Unfortunately, after sliding it into place it sat too deep in the handle and pointed NOT at the ground behind the...

    My white backup lights don't go on in reverse. Also, in reverse, the passenger rear view mirror doesn't move down to aid in parking. The mirror CAN be moved to the down position with the switches on the driver armrest! These problems are new. Is it possible that these two situations are...

    E46 Xi Forum
    Hello all, This is my first post to the forum. I recently had a 2003 325xi fall into my lap - it was a deal too good to pass up; and I've been meaning to try out the other AWD systems from various manufacturers. Our last 7 cars have been Audi's - I consider myself an expert in owning and...
  18. weird problem with manual transmission...

    General E46 Forum
    This problem happens randomly. After starting the car (Engine warm, hot, or cold) if I shift to Reverse, the car stalls or dies. It happens when I am shifting to reverse not when I am engaging/disengaging the clutch. If I can make it into the gear without it dying or stalling then, I fine, but...
  19. Manual Transmission Problem - No Reverse

    General E46 Forum
    I have a 2001 330ci, manual. My brother drove it this weekend, and when coming to a stop he hit reverse instead of 1st gear. He said there was a little grind, but he quickly pulled back and put it in 1st. Now I don't have reverse. When moving the gearshift into reverse, there is no resistance...
