Wehn a BMW detects a possible fault on a sensor, the whole car shuts down. i mean everything stops working.

it does it so that if there is a problem loads of damage isn't caused.

that is why when ever a bmw breaks down it have to be lorried away,.

What a pile of shite.

A loose connector on the battery would 'shut down' any car.

Your statement is simply untrue.

Right well now i need to find out how the hell i get a code for the stereo, its BMW standard cassette/radio with disc changer, but there was no code with the paper work taht came with it.
Anybody know how to go about this? Or is it a case of driving to BMW and asking them?

wish that happened to all BMW drivers :(

and of course it doesn't shut down completely when a fault sensor comes on, otherwise warning lights would be rendered useless, but certain sensors would, depending on the fault

now please do the world a favour and park the car on a very steep hill and leave the handbrake off :cheers:

Now now stop with the bickering, i dont want to get involved with this BM is better than Ford and Fords are better than BM, at the end of the day it doesnt matter what cars people drive, there are more important things to life than defending cars and their makers surely. Im driving the BM purely because mine is undriveable at present. It isnt my car so you can comment how crap it is to your hearts content. Come to think of it you can comment on how crap my escort is, lol.
