Speedometer Delay
 
When I accelerate from a dead stop, the speedometer doesn't move until i hit 2.5-3k RPM..which is unusually slow. Just wondering what could be going wrong here?

I believe it might have to do with the speed sensor near the Right rear ABS sensor..

I just got my winter wheels mounted onto my rims, and when they put it back, could they have accidentally tampered with the sensor? causing a slight delay in the reading?

thanks for the help

Do you have any lights on?

jmanhas 10-12-2012 04:23 PM

nope no lights on, everything looks normal..
when i changed my tires, i went from a 225 40 18, to a 245 40 18..
would that affect my speedometer that much?!

It could be because the needle rests on 5mph...not zero.

OP,
Do the Cluster reset..

Specifically:
Menu 19 to unlock
Then
Menu 21 to reset.

All your gauges will cycle, and recalibrate.

Report back.

My car does it too. No need to reset...again, the needle rests at 5mph, not zero.

hmn.. my speedometer never did that tho, thats the weird part.
I'm going to try the cluster reset and let you know how it goes..

keep us posted

so i did a completely speedometer reset, where all the lights come on, and the gauges sweep.

and its back to normal now!

thanks for all the help :)

For the record. That is NOT a reset nor is it a recalibration. It is purely a visual function test, nothing more.

Any resolve from this has simply come from running the gauges through their sweep. A 180mph speed run would of done the same thing (just a point to prove that there is no recalibration procedure).

True, there is no comparative measurements, and tweaks while doing this, so I'm sorry that I used the word calibrate....perhaps exercise would have been a better choice.
As far as the reset....well you're incorrect. I assume you have done this, have you never noticed that
it does reset MPH, MPG predicted
range, and trip, well the trip gets reset because the stalk gets pressed to enter into the locked cluster menus...

I don't recall that being rolled into the visual function test. I'll have to go out and look later. These would be two different menu selections on the E36 and the E39 (which are the last two vehicles in my mind using these menus).

Guaranteed, menu 21 resets all the previously mentioned parameters.

It has on my past three "3 series"
