a few questions

i have a 93 325 and my temp gauge doesn't work. where is the sensor located? also is the "check" light the same as check engine light? or is the "check" light supposed to correlate with the obc? the obc says "check coolant level" and "brake light circuit" and check wiper fluid level" i'm sure the coolant level sender's toast, wiper fluid level's toast, and i just got the brake light circuit one.

what does the check engine light look like on my cluster? as stated before, is it the same as the yellow "check" light?

The temp. gauge is located on the t-stat housing, "check coolant level" means you are low on coolant, "brake light circuit failure" could either be a bad bulb or bulb contacts or a faulty brake switch....."yellow check" is CEL.....!

brake light circuit just means you need to replace sensor above brake pedal

check coolant level could be triggered by air in your coolant system.

The check engine light looks like "check engine"
