  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    My Fuel Sender Sensor is faulty and tried to order one from BMW but they say 8 weeks delivery from Germany. Understood the OM is made by VDO Siemens then again cannot get any in few days. Any other model which will not give me errors? Thanks

    Hi all, I have checked both sender units with multimeter and found the single sender unit (uk passenger side) is responding with correct ohms value for the amount of fuel in the tank, but the combo (pump/sender) unit is giving a reading of nil ohms. I can make the petrol gauge on the dash read...

    Hi, Noticed a problem with my car the other day. If I turn the car on with the heating off, it will idle at around 700rpm, as soon as I turn the fan on (even the lowest setting) the idle will rise to about 900rpm. Is this a problem? Also, the temperature gauge never reaches 12 o clock in...
