Re: Interior dash light Binncle light not working any help

You should put the car information in your signature. It helps us help you :) You should also download the appropriate Electrical Troubleshooting Manual from here; http://wedophones.com/Manuals/BMW/ and learn to conduct a systematic testing process. Do you have a multimeter ? Looking at the ETM I ca...

Re: Begging for help! - A/C blower

The same controller is used for both the heater blower and A/C. Beg, borrow, or steal a DC clamp ammeter to measure current the motor is pulling.

Re: '87 M6 oxygen sensor - what does it do?

Sorry, but if your car hasn't been on the dyno how do you know power output ? I'm just confused. Where are those power output figures coming from ?

I'll check the other thread. Struggling with vision at the moment as just had laser eye surgery :)

Re: '87 M6 oxygen sensor - what does it do?

The car will run OKish without the O2 sensor. You are not clear in what you are saying they did. First question to ask (or research) is if the WAR chip operates in closed (needs the O2 sensor) or open mode (does not need) ? I'm not familiar with Miller chips. The other question is what machine did t...

Re: What do I want off an Australian b35 for my b34?

My honest opinion is that that's a lot of work to do for a little gain. Are you doing this yourself or paying a shop ? Probably OK if you're DIYing it. What I decided to do was find a good S38B36 and drop it in my 1986 635csi. A lot of work (and still not finished), but a lot of gain over the M30. T...

Re: '87 M6 oxygen sensor - what does it do?

Shop A/F ratio machines have a probe which inserts into the exhaust. The O2 sensor reports to the ECU and as a closed loop, controls engine A/F ratio to about 14.7:1. The throttle position switch tells the ECU to ignore the O2 sensor at full throttle and idle.

Re: Hack Mechanic sorts out the Shark

Just a bump and also a big thank you to Rob for putting these articles together. Very thorough and informative.

I will be tackling the A/C on LOCUTUS in the near future and these pieces are invaluable.

Re: Missing Economy Gauge wire - 85 Euro

Economy gauge signal is derived from Motronic (pin 1 white wire ECU) via the C103 plug (pin 3 blk/white wire) on the engine harness.

Re: ABS SENSOR / BOSCH PART NUMBER?

It is only cable after all. That solution will work OK but I would advise against using un-shielded cable. BMW used shielded cable for a reason, to negate spurious signals in an important system, ie, the ABS.

The best idea we can give you is for you to download the ETM, grab a reliable multimeter, and get to fault finding. We can help you from there.

The problem is the heater blower transistor, but you should check and probably replace both.

A bit hard to see, but it looks like brown, black, red. Which would make it a 1K ohm resistor.
