  2. Yellow DSC & BRAKE light cause?

    General E46 Forum
    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i :excited:and all of the sudden it feels like the drivers side front wheel grabs for a second and then lets go. Then the yellow dash DSC and “Brake” light will come on and stay on until I shut the car off. They usually reset. Occasionally, when driving, the yellow...

    E46 Touring
    Hi, Long story short: no crank. First I thought it might be the battery on the key so EWS was not recognizing it, but then I noticed that in the small display on the right "P" was missing. After some digging I found out that the sensor (Transmission Range Sensor) which sends the gear leaver...
  7. 328i is overheating on very hot days in traffic although no coolant leaks etc

    General E46 Forum
    My 328i just started to overheat in this summer heat and we cannot seem to find any problems with the cooling system ALTHOUGH there is no auxiliary fan sensor box mounted on the shroud and I can't remember if there ever was one.

    General E46 Forum
    Hello, I am a new member on the e46 forums. I'm not sure if this is really a thing that can be fixed without getting a new windshield but I thought it would be good to ask.
