    Hey guys iv got a 99 E46 328Ci with around 125k on it

    Started car yesterday, noticed Handbrake light stayed on and ABS light was on, great

    Then radio turns off, heater lighting very dim

    Then Battery light and Traction control light on constantly, use the car nearly everyday and thought it would clear after a drive

    drove 60miles to where i work during the week parked up left for 2 hours then drove to a mates and back only the red battery light on this occasion

    Next morning completely dead, nothing, jumped off a friends car and got to work, got a battery installed, started, but all the lights came on and stayed on.

    Drove 200yards, redlight for batt and traction control dissapear, handbrake and abs light stayed on, then whenver i braked or put indicator on or engine came to idle the battery light and traction control light would come on or flicker

    Guess my alternator is fcuked??? any ideas

    hi, i got similar problems, had a little crash, hit the kerb, dashboard looks like chrismass tree since then, dsc, abs, handbrake light on. i fixed car, mecanic checked the sensors and cabling all seemed fine. we went to do the obd, there were some errors which we deleted, only one stayed - 'can bus' something that we cannot delete (if i remember it was error code 0094). after that the lights on the dashboard are still on, now the on board computer doesnt work when i want to scroll the average mpg, temperature (they dont work since crash anyways as the sensor is responsible for them) and so on, like its even worse than before. i will try to do some obd in other place i dont know. any suggestions?
