1997 328i 4 door sedan 160,000. I always have to press in clutch in order to start the car. Lately I have noticed it does not always start. It sounds like it but then doesn't. So I move it to a diff gear and press in clutch again and its starts. I was told there may be a clutch switch that needs to be replaced? Its vrry erratic does not always happen but its there. Does anyone have this car or know what it could be????
just a matter of getting underneath there as its a bit tight... if the old switch is just plastic and your having trouble getting it out just break it off. (something most people dont really think about)
I wonder though if it is the switch. It always starts fine in the mornings. Its only after driving around and parking going into a store then when I restart it is when it happens. If it was the switch wouldn't it be all the time?
