Re: Cabin Constantly Hot, Need Help

I would make sure the voltage changes to the harness @ the valve when you turn the heat control switch from heat to cool.

Jay's statement is starting with bad ABS.
Your statement is starting with good ABS.

Both are correct.

Re: Feedback from those using a Miller MAF.

I needed a stand alone ecu for my engine build so my Miller MAF, 059 refurbished ecu with
the miller non WAR 28 pin chip is for sale.

For the whole package I'd like to get $400 shipped.

Re: Cool Sony CD changer ad, featuring an E24

OK, in 1988 here in Rockland NY an M6 was going for a little over 60 big ones @ the Ferrari- BMW dealership.
I bought my 86 635 in 88 for $32.5 with about 23,000 miles. So yeah, needed deep pockets in those days.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Hey Bert, I never thought of the powder coating weight. You may have something there. A couple of lbs is a couple of lbs. My chariot is finally done with all the big items. Had the deferential from Metric Mechanic installed last week. At 76 my wife won't let me get underneath anymore. I went to Lime...

Yeah, the larger calipers needed more volume so that makes sense.

No worries, no apology needed. That's what America is all about. The freedom to banter.

Re: Brake pedal randomly goes to the floor

I installed the same 750 master with the upgraded calipers, no extra pressure needed.
The car always had pretty good brakes, but the upgrade when your on the track really
makes deeper braking possible.

He's right, did you ever see how leaves burn? The left coast could create many jobs if they raked those leaves.

Re: seat motor

I would use a stethoscope on the relay box and motor to determine where the click
is coming from.

The best way would be to to check if juice is getting to the motor with
a multi-meter.

Re: seat motor

Power seat schematic starts on page 5200-0. Troubleshooting for seats starts on page 5200 A-0. I think the relay click is the sound you hear under the drivers seat. https://www.millerperformancecars.com/files/bmw%20electrical%20manual/1988%20BMW%20635csi%20-%20M6%20Electrical%20Troubleshooting%20Man...

Re: 1988 Hard Start, Stumble, Dies

It sounds like a vacuum leak to me also. Visual inspection may not be enough.
Do a smoke test to be sure.

Then follow this. It should give you direction to a solution.

Re: Unused diagnostic/optional equipment connectors...

Maybe a later year ETM may reveal what those connections are for.

I know you can find it but I had the link here it is 1989 ETM.
