Your Ride: 1995 318i se
318i se 1995 car will not start! please help

Hi all, New to the forum and would really appreciate some help with my car.

I have a 1995 318i se and it will not start. I have previously had much smaller problems starting just have to take the key out and put it back in or wait a few secs before you turn the fully to make her fire up.

Now, you can turn the key all dask lights come on as normal and you turn the last click on the ignition and nothing. The immobliser is flashing like crazy when the key is in ignition and then after 30 seconds say, it calms back to normal flashing speed but still nothing no started motor cutting in or anything.

I have tried disconnecting battery with igniton on, tried the door shut window open etc etc.

I would now like to know how to disconnect the immoblisier now and if someone could tell me where the immobliser brain is as I am yet to find it!

Any help greatly appreciated
Many thanks, Steph

The light control module contains the DWS (security system). Mine burnt out and I had to pull it. Car starts and runs fine but there's no interior lighting, power window or power door lock control until I get a replacement. I don't know if that will solve your problem but should answer your question.
