Customer Question

replaced the air temperature sensor the car starts then shuts off
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with BMW. The BMW Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: well the car runs about a minute then shuts off after replacing the outside temperature sensor.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: made sure all air intake is sealed
JA: Is there anything else the BMW Mechanic should be aware of about your BMW?
Customer: no everything works fine as far as mechanical but my radio is not turning on but the clock works on it.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the BMW Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
