DSC System Failure in Your BMW

Written by

BMWs are known for their resilience, reliability, and strength. They’re designed and engineered with characteristics in mind that are typical of the brand, but also addressing the desires of the BMW clientele—we mean power, consistency, and durability. When your BMW begins to malfunction in various ways, it can be highly concerning—and rightfully so; those of us who are fans of the BMW brand come to expect a certain level of excellence that is typically unrivaled by other vehicle manufacturers.

Reasons for Air Suspension Failure in a Jaguar

Written by

Jaguar vehicles are especially known for their lavishness—not only in design and engineering, but in performance and comfort. European import brands such as Jaguar are special in that they can out-perform many of the vehicles on the road today, and are sought-after by car enthusiasts of all ages and generations. However, all of that luxury and high-quality performance can go down the drain without the proper care and maintenance.

Cars from different manufacturers behave and perform differently. Due to differences in design, engineering, and execution, there are variations among all vehicles—and not just vehicles from differing manufacturers. In fact, there are many variations between vehicles from the same manufacturer. For instance, all Volvos are made by the same company; however, not every model is the same. The same rule applies to the common issues that Volvos often encounter.

How to Inspect Failed Suspension Struts of Land Rover

Written by

Land Rovers are a current trend in the automotive industry for their luxury and elegance. However, these luxury cars are above all else road-ready.

Unfortunately, sometimes we can be a little too rough, causing parts to malfunction or fail. Alternatively, parts simply become worn over time and eventually need to be replaced.

Does My Jaguar Have a Bad Ignition Coil?

Written by

Your Jaguar consists of a complex system of interworking parts and pieces that depend on one another to perform optimally at all times. When one of these parts becomes worn out or fails, it can cause a chain reaction of problems leading to engine trouble, including total engine failure. Jaguars are incredible cars, known for their luxury and high quality. If you drive a Jaguar and notice that the performance is dwindling or becoming unreliable, it can be disheartening; however, general, ongoing maintenance can help keep your car in optimal running condition. Furthermore, routine inspection of certain parts of your Jaguar is essential to ensure that every system is working at its best.

Unfortunately, just like every other machine or vehicle on the market today, problems can arise.

How Do I Reset The Inspection Light On My BMW?

Written by

The new technology has enabled people to enjoy driving rather than thinking of it as just a chore. In early days the cars were operated by hydraulic systems and the mechanisms of car were connected through pivots for pressure and oils. With the dawn of a new era, the cars started to be assembled through integrated software and computerized systems. Examples of such high tech cars would be Mercedes, Mark Series and of course BMW!

 

BMW comes equipped with advanced features such as keyless entry systems, keyless ignition systems , automatic features and if there is a problem with the engine than the traditional engine problem light has been replaced with inspection lights. Many of you who do not understand what an inspection light is , should read this article to understand the functions and basics of an inspection light and how to disable the light if its causing a lot of trouble.

Many of you who do not understand what an inspection light is , should read this article to understand the functions and basics of an inspection light and how to disable the light if its causing a lot of trouble.

 

An inspection light appears on the speedometer of a car when there is some problem with the car such as a leak in the brake oil , a problem with the engine belt, a micro processor chip not functioning well or to sum it up when the car requires system maintenance and service. An inspection light is usually indicated by a yellow light blinking on the speedometer.

 

The best way to disable the inspection light would be to take the car to a BMW showroom for system maintenance to check what is the problem in the car to avoid unforeseen contingencies. People make the mistake of bringing their cars to a normal service centre which usually is not as effective as the BMW official showrooms are. On the other hand if you just want to disable the inspection light then there are a few simple steps to be followed in the order described below.

 

 

Step 1: Turn the ignition off Step 2: Press and Hold the trip odometer button while turning key to position 1. Step 3 : Hold the button pressed for about 5 secsuntil you see “Oil Service” or “Inspection” with “Reset” or “Re” in the display then let go Step 4 : Press the button again and hold for approximately 5 secs. until “Reset” or “Re” flashes Step 5: As soon as the “reset” flashes on the screen , stop pressing immediately .

 

 

The Inspection light should no longer be there when you start your engine again. This is a fairly easy step by step procedure only if followed in the correct manner.

 

BMW users should be aware that they are using a highly technological car in terms of drive and transmission. It should be noticed that if a light flashes on the meter than handling the problem themselves should not be a priority. They should contact the vendor to sort out the problems they are facing if they want to avoid further problems. Because if something goes wrong with the microprocessor chip then the whole system software might be at risk.
