  2. Sensors behind the bumper 2013 Coupe

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    I have just got a 2013 E82 which came into me with some parts missing on the front. Has anyone got any pictures of what should be behind the bumper? I have had to buy a pedestrian sensor with bracket and foam, along with a new bumper etc but I can't figure out where a small sensor lives that I...
  3. Modified spanner for DSC brake sensors

    Technical Guides for the E46
    I had to change one of the DSC sensors, and they are a bit of a pig to undo with standard tools. It's 27mm hex head. A normal socket wont fit due to the connector. A deep 27mm is too long and hits the body (plus there's no way a ratchet handle would fit). A standard combination spanner hits...
  4. Tyre Pressure Sensors Code

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi, I have bought two Schrader tyre pressure valves to replace damaged valves on my 2015 420d. The new valves need programmed to the car so it can read the info from them but I don`t know where to get the code from. My garage has the coding device but no code came with the valves so I`m at an...
  5. E46 2004 320d - Does the system need a recalibration for new DSC pressure sensors

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I've found that Russian site for the E46 service manual. It mentions a "you must reconcile using DIS (Diagnostic Information System) by selecting the "Additional Functions" menu item." Does that mean recalibrate somehow, and it's just a poor translation? What is the procedure to...
  6. E46 2004 320d - Non BMW dsc brake pressure sensors

    General BMW Discussions
    I'm looking to replace one or both of the DSC brake pressure sensors on a 2004 320d E46. Are there any non-BMW parts recommended? Ebay has lots of cheaper alternatives, does anyone have a known good supplier (ebay or otherwise), and not one of the Chinese copy parts?

  8. Throttle position sensors

    BMW 7 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 7 Series
    After my ecu packed in, I have fitted a Emerald stand alone ecu to get up and running. The auto electrician, who is doing the work, is trying to find a more compatible TPS, as the standard one, doesn't give enough info. Must add, this is for a 1982 735i. I was wondering if anyone has modded...
  9. Parking Sensors - where to buy?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    One of the front PDC sensors on my E61 recently threw a wobbler and caused the system to throw a fault. I replaced it with a genuine used BMW part but, while it works and the fault no longer appears in iDrive, it constantly thinks there is an object 46cm from the bumper even when there’s nothing...
  10. Cam shaft sensors

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, E46 318i 2003 I'm looking to replace a cam shaft sensor again. I swapped one for a genuine used on a few years back. Only thing is, now when I'm looking on euro car parts, eBay or anywhere else all of the sensors now seem fatter? The original ones (that i took off) have a fat base...
  11. E46 brake pressure sensors

    General BMW Discussions
    What's normally done with brake bleeding when it comes to changing the pressure sensors? Is there any point at bleeding from the caliper?, or is there enough fluid seeping out when changing them not to be an issue with air in the system?, or does the air make it's way back to the reservoir...

  13. Front parking sensors problem

    Auto Electrical Forum
    So I bought a 2015 bmw 1 series. It came with the comfort pack so has rear parking sensors that are activated by putting the vehicle into reverse. I also have front sensors but I can't seem to work out how to activate them. I don't have a button either. Could the BMW dealer have removed...
  14. Has anyone tried eBay Vanos Solenoids / Low Pressure Fuel Sensors?

    General BMW Discussions
    Originally posted this in the E90 technical forum but realised experience with any model would probably work for me! 320i E92 has been running pretty well since it was recalled and I got all of the freebies, but I'm still throwing a Low Pressure Fuel Sensor code, and with 90k on the clock it's...

  16. E92 320i - anyone tried eBay Vanos Solenoids / Low Pressure Fuel Sensors?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Cars been running pretty well since it was recalled and I got all of the freebies, but I’m still throwing a Low Pressure Fuel Sensor code, and with 90k on the clock it’s probably also time to swap out the Vanos solenoids. It’s in for a service next week, might get the mechanic to replace these...
  17. Rear parking sensors and reverse lights

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all I have a BMW 320d 2010 M sport Lci. The car was parked up for a few months and had a flat battery. Ever since, the rear parking sensors and reverse lights have not been working. There is no noise at all from parking sensors(no clicking either). I changed both reverse bulbs but that did...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hey all, recently replaced 2 parking sensors on my 320ci m sport. All click fine now but upon opening inpa I can see that the 2 sensors I replaced are recognised but do not give readings, the sensors I got were from a local car parts supplier and as such I can get a refund as the clearly are...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi guys As per title... where are the 'Height Level Sensors' or Vertical Level Sensors' on the F11 please? It's odd but I can't find any good reference material (inc. realoem) that gives a detailed location or graphical representation. Thanks Steve
  20. Replacement parking sensors. Genuine or not?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Posted this in the general forum but got no bites so I'll try here. Is it worth spending the money on genuine BMW rear parking sensors or are the cheaper ebay ones ok? I only ask because there is a massive difference in price and a mate of mine paid a lot less than the cost of 1 genuine sensor...
