Believe it or not , I managed to convert my 1983 BMW 735i engine to a Supra 1JZ engine and it took me half a year to complete it. The complete wiring was transfered over.

Now my bimmer is power by 1JZ-GTE engine, I am really happy and enjoying it.

However I have a flashing O/D indicator below the tachometer when I speed up. It stays flashing till I off and re-start the engine again.

Appreciate if somebody could help.

Many thanks.

:help::help:

I am guessing if you have an O/D button you have an Auto Box ?

Sounds like something ain't quite right in the wiring of the new engine....

Supra Engine in a BMW ???? Does this mean the fog lights now turn off and the indicators started working ?

Yes, the O/D , Power & Manual button are fitted and they are functioning well.

However the flashing O/D indicator only comes out if I do a hard rev while engaging on Drive.

Do you think it try to indicate something faulty on the A/T ?

I will put up some pictures of my car later.

It may sounds crazy to most of you but it's true. I managed to get the legal approval from the authority to convert the engine and obtained the valid road tax & insurance.

Did anyone, or can anyone recomend what the usual problem is when the o/d light is flashing? I have a 1995 toyota Camry, and tonight the o/d light started flashing, and the check engine light came on. do I take it to a transmission place or the usual local garage

(or to the Toyota dealer :( )?
