2002 BMW 325xi, doesn't start after oil change

I recently purchased a 2002 BMW 325xi, I was driving to work last week and the oil light came on (yellow). I looked up at the sticker on the windshield and it was time for an oil change, so I called the mechanic and took it in the next day. It ran fine for a few days, on my way home on Christmas my garage was blocked so I parked it outside overnight and most of the next day. That evening I drove it into the garage and the next morning it wouldn't start. It made the grrr noise but never cranked, I tried jumping it, same problem. I pushed it out last night and this morning it still wouldn't start.

I read about oil changes in the service manual and am wondering if all the steps weren't followed that it would be pissed and not start. With the key in the run position I now see the oil light red, the battery light red, and the yellow check engine light.

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

For 2002 BMW 325I a yellow oil light comes on when engine first starts and sometimes at random times then turns off a few minutes later. All oil levels are good. Not sure what this means and how to fix it?


The oil light does not show that you need oil necessarily. The oil light goes on when the oil pressure is low, not the oil, so it could be a problem with your oil pump or otherwise. Common that it would go on and off, it it were to stay on for very long you'd lose oil pressure and could be in trouble. Have it looked at.

Good luck!

My 2002 bmw 325xi fuel filter location?


It is on the drivers side on the chassis.

yes you can change it yourself. Make sure you de-pressurize the system before removing (undo the gas cap).

Also...order the filter from bavarian auto or one of the online stores. The one you need is with the pressure regulator.

If you go to autozone, etc. they will sell you the worng filter.

2003 BMW 325xi won't start, dashboard and radio go on.


My 2003 325xi died on the highway a few weeks ago, and I thought it was the battery. It turned out to be the alternator, which was an expensive problem to repair. If your battery is new, it could be the alternator, or a problem with the electrical system. I find the BMWs to be too complicated electrically, which often leads to problems! I'd check your alternator...

Changing headlamps on 2003 bmw 325xi


I am assuming that you have a burned out head light bulb.
1) Open hood.
2) Working in back of headlight assembly, grasp rear of bulb socket (harness connector) and turn counterclockwise 90 degrees. Pull bulb out of headlight assembly.
3) Disconnect harness connector from bulb (gently pry, it's plastic)
4) Installation is reverse of removal. (Do not touch halogen bulb with bare skin-oils from hand will cause bulb to burn out.) Align tabs on bulb base to cutouts on rear of lens assembly. (Note bottom tab is wider than other two) Secure bulb by rotating clockwise 90 degrees.
Low beam bulb H9006
High beam bulb H9005

Battery or radiator light on a 1999 BMW 318i SE


The below is taken from another site written a year ago:
What you are looking at is the Service Indicator. The green, yellow and red lights let you know when service needs to be performed. The green lights mean everything is still good. The yellow lights mean "anytime you're ready." The red lights mean do the service ASAP. There are also two other lighted areas. One says "inspection," the other says "oil change" (or oil service.) An oil change is an oil change. However, there are two inspections: Inspection 1 is normally at every other 15,000 miles; Inspections 2 is at every 30,000 miles. Your local BMW dealer should have a pamphlet listing all duties performed for each of the services. Inspection 2 can run you around $400-$800 depending on the service station/dealership's labor rates. Inspections 1 should be around 1/2 of that. You should have your oil changed about every 5000 miles. Dealership oil changes can range from $35-$65. A BMW that is well taken care of will last a long time. 

FYI, don't be surprised if the SI (service indicator) board decides to **** out one day. I'm surprised to see yours is still working (they usually die within 10 years unless someone went thru the expense to have it replaced.) If/when it does go, just gauge your services by the mileage intervals I've listed above. I'd also recommend when you stop into (or just call) the dealership, go to the parts department and order an owner's manual for your BMW. Should be less than $20 and get to you in about a week unless they have one in stock.
When the service tech has performed the necessary service(s), he will reset your SI board so that only green lights are showing.
