    Hi all,

    New to the forum and just bought a nice 1999 323ci coupe.

    finding all the little problems but the main ones are the following:

    ambient temp @ -40 (poss no sensor or duff)
    no door open warning light
    occasionally dash does not work at all?
    no indicator warning lights permanent
    no clock
    ASC, handbrake and another light on

    Had a look around but turned nothing up. has anyone seen this before? Thanks all

    Have you checked the ambient temp sensor is still connected? it lives under the bumper just in front of the front wheel.
