    General BMW Discussions
    This car was presented after visiting the local BMW dealer for diagnostics who said it needed two new driveshafts and two new ABS sensors at a cost of £2000. In my workshop, the driveshafts were removed and it was noted that the ABS sensor rings on the CV joint were contacting the sensor faces...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    ATC/ABS warning light flashes on - briefly - during pull away. Happens occasionally only and when pulling away normally on firm road surface. No mud/snow etc. Otherwise warning light behaves exactly as expected. Is this normal or indicative of a possible fault? Hopefully you can tell me...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    So I came to start my car this evening, unlock, key in, foot on break, start button pressed and nothing... Just what sounds like the starter solenoid clicking. Just like if you try to start it without your foot on the break (or clutch in the manual). The glow plug pre-heating light is...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    We had a 320d at my work with this problem & I had the joy of fixing it :P. Whilst it did have a code for the cam sensor which cleared after fitting a new 1, it didn't cure the intermittent non starting problem. The non starting happened only rarely, so it made it a bitch to track down...
