Hey there peeps, thanks for taking some time to read this.....
Ok I own a 1995 740il, and it has bee givingnme some problems. Recently i washed the car and I think I may have sprayed some water into the engine bay. About 1.5hrs later the dash (instrument cluster) went on the fritz. I was not able to read a damn thing. It looked like the car was possesed (lol). The car was still running fine though, so i figured that the problem would correct itself. Well by the next day, the car would not start. When turning the key all the lights would come on (including headlights) and the starter would turn. Yet the engine would not even attempt to turn over. You could hear everything going except for the actual engine. I even did the gas pedal to the floor b4 putting the key in just incase it was flooded, but still nothing. By now the display was relaying all the information just like normal (non-possesed), but "trans program
" came up in the display panel. has anything like this happened to anyone b4? Can you all thing of any possible causes. There is a 1/4 tank of gas in the car, and I even recharged the battery just to make sure. The car has oil too. I also should say that I let my mother drive the car while I'm away at school. I tell her to maintain it, but I dont know if she does. I suspect it may be fouled plugs, but i would like to hear what yall think. THanks for reading/replying to this post (i know it was long!)........talon
