320d unfixable problem

Hello guys,I'm from Bosnia,and this is my first post here!I used to be proud owner,but now I'm just the owner of BMW 320d,that is out of work for 3 months now,and it can not be fixed with authorized mechanic shops in Bosnia!

Here is the problem:

When starting the engine that has already been heated on the working temperature,the pointer of the temperature indicator goes all the way to the right(in the red zone)so that the engine can not start!Sometimes the hand-break's yellow bulb turns on,and the DSC yellow bulb is switched on permanently.
After a certain period of time(half an hour,sometimes 1 hour)everything is back to normal!
I must say that the engine doesn't really overheat even though it says it does!I can't go anywhere with my car,because I don't know when it will turn on!

Please HELP!!!!

Thank you!

Seems to be sensor fault, maybe a realy that control various functions, like DSC, Temperature.
The ideal thing that you should do an error diagnostic, it could also be de ECU.

I had a Land Rover Defender with the same problem, (he hadn't DSC of course), but was the same problem exactly as you described. No one knows how to solve the problem, i sold it because that problem...

As the car is a BMW, normalmally the dignostic tool may identify you problem!!

If there isn't any one with such dignostic tool in Bosnia, you have a big problem, cause the new cars has the electronic issue...

Good luck....

Problem strictly electronic. Electronic diagnosis will show what part is wrong. If you have to try by trial and error, start with the ECU program, which seems to be the culprit. But first make sure all fuses and relays are OK, and sensors are connected firmly.

Good luck. Bim
