Hello, I have recently bought a 94' 325is. I am very happy with it, but it has a few bugs.
One thing is the locks. I cant seem to figure out how to lock it. I have two different keys. One for ignition and one for my door lock. if I turn the key to lock it, both doorlocks go down then pop up. If i hold the key to the locked position, the driver side doorlock wont pop back up, but the passenger side does. So what i do is hold the key to lock the driver side, then walk all the way around to the passenger side to manually push the lock down. Its only when I push the driver side down that it pops them back up. Also, neither of my keys work for the passenger side door. I dont know if it will help to tell you that i have a Viper brand alarm system.
Another thing is that i cannot figure out how to lock my trunk. I have tried both keys turning both ways. I have also tried to push the button in and turn the key. I am thinking i dont have the key for it, but then again i have never had a Bimmer before so i dont know how the lock works.
Another problem is my spedometer. It doesnt work properly It was just recently that it stopped working. i have an aftermarket white panel thingy... anyway, the spedo pulses up rather than go up smoothly. Also it seems to get stuck on some speeds. If im going 25-40 it is stuck on 23 if i get to 50 it jumps up and sticks untill i get to 65. The speed is accurate on the check panel under the sterio though. I am thinking its electrical, what do you think?
Lastly, i am missing a few clips for my door panel. you know the little white clips that holds the panel on. Where would i go to get a few more of those?
Thanks for the help...
