I need help regarding a new problem with my 2000 323 bmw
The car started to have a very strange problem that happens between the time you start the car until it is shut off.
Once you restart the car it is 33% that this ride is going to be a problem.
Here are the syptmos:
The car ignition take about 1/2 second more then the regular
Once the car starts you have about 50% down in accelaration
This mean you can presss the gaz 100% and the rpm is on 2000.
The engine sounds good as if the computer is prevanting regular drive.
The unknown thing about this issue is that when I close the car wait few minutes and reopen it it can start up normally and drive will be ok.
The car will never change in the middle of the drive meanning if it starts ok then it will drive ok, if it starts bad then it will drive bad until next time.
If you just close the switch and restart it will most lieklly not change anything.
What can make a difference is if you close the car with the key or open with the ley letting the alarm to start and then turn it off.
This usully can give you a good drive after.
I am a qualuity service engineer and immidiatlly suspected that soething is wrong with the software of the car.
I have recorded 1 month of car drives and does not have a clear clue yet.
I suspect the alarm system or the additinal Multi Lock imbolizer Gps system that asks for a code in order to start the car, this is a must here in israel.
The solution has to be something bmw do once when you start the car. it can not be a sensor that reads data during the drive many times since as I said the decision is made when you start the car.
I am waiting for a response from BMW in germany.
I will appriciate any clue for this problem since I am not fimiliar with the design of the electronic system and computer of the car
