  2. Airbag Light On after Seat Leather Repair

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I brought my car for seat leather repair and when I got it back the airbag light was on. I asked the guy who worked on it and he said he had disconnected and then connected the sensor and now the light must be reset by BMW. I checked with my Peake tool and it shows no error codes. I removed the...
  3. Low oil temperature reading

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi all, hoping someone can help. I have an unusual issue with my oil temperaures which are showing about 55 degrees when fully warmed up, at idle. I'm monitoring them using the secret menu and the water (KTEMP) is showing 88 degrees - I'd expect the oil to be a few degrees less. I've just...
  4. Oil temp, strange behavior

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Posting to get opinions and experiences: My 91 M5 (American) has recently started having a strange issue with oil temp - at least as indicated. The background - fuse 1 blew and the whole cluster went dead - no tach, speedo, fuel, coolant or oil temp at all. Had to run like that for a bit, but...

    Replaced my MAFs as part of the 100K maintenance, but these still operated fine when I took them out. They might have been replaced before now, because these certainly don't look like they've accrued 100K miles. They look nice and clean. See for yourself, I can post a high res pic if you'd...

  12. flickering CEL, coolant temp sensor?

    E34 M5 Discussion
    I've got a 91 US model and I recently started getting a flickering check engine light. I pulled the code, 1223, coolant temperature sensor. I also get an occasional moment where the water temp gauge drops to zero, then returns on its own. Given the random flickering of the CEL, I figured it...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I've had this message popping up intermittently after switching off the engine after a 30 mile commute, odd occasions temp guage was shooting up to far end of scale at the begining of journeys before settling at 90 degrees. Dipstick oil level has been fine so this pointed to a duff oil level...
  14. Oil Temperature Sensor/Gauge problem

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Oil temp gauge on my 1999 M5 is playing up a bit - when the car is cold, the oil temperature gauge shows maximum , then it goes back to normal after around 1/2 hours of driving. I suspect it is faulty temp sensor. Any idea where is Oil temperature sensor located on M5? Thanks!
