E34 ignition switch broken?
My ignition switch failed so I opted for a new BMW one. It has arrived but is different to the old one. The old one has a plastic part that facilitates the fitting of two wires, The new one has not and has a plain trim.
After searching the net I eventually had a peep into the column and found that a white metal part that will fit to the rear of the switch was loose and appears to have a piece missing from the rear. The rear appears to have been a full circle and is now missing a quarter of its area. Any advice would be much appreciated.
I just went through the same, had to have the entire switch and mount replaced. Some have an antenna in a ring around the switch and must match the code in the original key, otherwise everything lights up but it won't start. Provide the dealer with a copy of your licence and the vehicle registration and you can get a new key made with the right code.
