In Reply to: Door chime dead on E28.. posted by Serg on January 08, 2001 at 20:58:42:
The chime unit is hidden behind the driver's kick panel, forward of the driver's left knee. It's a black plastic box with two electrical connectors. One connector has three wires, and one has two.
The two-wire connector controls the "key is in lock" repetitive "bong-bong-bong." The three-wire connector is the "temperature alert" single "bong."
Hope this helps.
You guys all seem so good at fixing others problems I had to come up with something I needed fixed and I just remembered when someone said they added a diode and speaker to their car to alert them when the headlights were on and the key was out.
Well I have had my '88 535is for 3 years and I just remembered that whenever I open the door with the lights on or whatever there is no chime.. my little buzzer is either dead or disconnected... can someon please tell me where it is so I can take a look?
