    hi there i have a 318ti 1997 model and the fuel/coolant gauges are causing me problems when you start the engine both gauges slow go all the way to full/hot then go down to empty/cold and stay there

    i have changed the fuel gauge and coolant sender unit but still have the same fault

    What happens if you perform a binnacle test? Hold down the mileage reset button with the ignition off, turn the ignition key to position 1, Wait for TEST to appear and then release reset button, watch as the binnacle does a self test.
