This is the thermal oil level sensor. I have had this problem in the past and it requires the sensor to be removed and cleaned or replaced. It will not cause any problems with the car

Oil light keeps comeing on ???


Remove the electric sender and install mechanical oil gauge to check that you have proper oil pressure. Bet ya the main bearings are not fitted correctly or the engine wasn't cleaned during overhaul and now bearings are trashed.

2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink Setup


**** >>> This setup I performed with my new 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Homelink and Chamberlain Garage Door Opener <<< ****

Chamberlain:
01. Power off or unplug the garage door opener motor power supply (which is mounted on ceiling of the garage) ;;;

02. keep the garage door opener transmitter in your hand (do not press any button at this time) ;;;

03. In your 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink button (which resides under rear view mirror) press the 1st and 3rd homelink button together for about 30-40 seconds (i.e., until the yellow light blinks fast) and when the yellow light next to the homelink button blinks fast release from pressing the (homelink) buttons ;;;

04. now hold the garage door opener transmitter closer (means within 2-4 inches) to the homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd) whichever you are planning to program to open the garage door ;;;

05. now press the garage door opener transmitter button and chosen homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd whatever you need) together ;;;

06. the yellow light (next to homelink button) initially may blink slowly but after few seconds (may be 10-20 seconds) will blink fast; once it started blinking fast release from pressing both garage door opener transmitter and homelink button ;;;

07. Now plug or power on the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) ;;;

08. On the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) press the "LEARN" button (once you press it may have yellow/orange color light; make sure the light is on) ; then within 30 seconds do the next steps #9, #10, #11 very carefully ;;;

09. go to your car and press the homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 1st iteration ;;;

10. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 2nd iteration ;;;

11. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 3rd iteration ** important note; generally three iterations are not necessary; and steps #9, #10, #11 must be performed within 30 seconds ** ;;;

12. during one of the iteration you will hear "CLICK" sound one-time from Garage door motor (which is mounted on ceiling) and if you have light attached with it; it will blink once (** if you hear the CLICK sound and/or light blinks once**) then the particular homelink button is programmed ;;;

13. now press the programmed homelink button; the garage door will open or close (but always it will take 3 or 4 blinks in yellow light or 2-3 seconds before the garage door opens or closes and which is normal) ;;;

** Thats it, your 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink setup is complete ** ;;;

You can program rest of the homelink button the same way but following from the steps between #4 and #13 ;;;

Hope this steps will help you to program chamberlain Garage door opener in 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink. ;;;


** possibly the above same steps may work with other BMW 5-series cars homelink too (but I'm not sure) **

Why does my traction control and eml light come on Bmw e46 ?


I'm sorry Roger but you are going to have to get it to someone with access to the plug in diagnostic unit for Beemers.
there seem to be several things going on but when it coughs up the diagnostic info you may go straight to it?

Oil light is on why?


I assume you have checked your oil level and it is ok. If the yellow oil light comes on a few seconds after start up and then goes off it means the oil level sensor is faulty. It is located on the bottom of the engine attached with 3, 10mm nuts. Remove the support pan first 8 bolts 16mm and drain the oil.

Yellow oil symbol kept turning on


this could be due to low oil. you need to check your oil level. if it is full i would do an oil change with a bmw filter. there is a difference in filters. the service engine soon light will have to be diagnosed. meaning pull codes to point you in the right direction. great car though. happy holidays

Yellow oil light comes on when starting the car


The 'idiot' light only lights at about 4 pounds of oil pressure (not a good thing) or below which means that: 1. Sensor has failed (very common) 2. Oil filter may be too dirty to pass oil as it should and the bypass in it has failed. 3. Oil pump is worn and failing.
The latter two possibilities can mean that you have low pressure compared to what it should be (30-60#) but enough above 4# to keep the sensor happy.
The sensor isn't terribly costly, even on a BMW it should be less than $30 US and the labor to install it is about 10 minutes.

Yellow oil light comes on at start up


The above "Guru has no idea what he is talking about. The yellow oil light means you need a new oil level sensor, if your oil is indeed full. Its located in the oil pan and costs around $100. Oh, and oil changed are around 15,000 miles, not 6000 miles. When the BMW is due for an oil change or inspection, the display says so. The yellow light is low oil. Please avoid giving advice when you don't know what you're talking about.
