I brought my 325i 1994 to a certified BMW mech to replace the radiator and a rear Bearing in the brakes. They replaced the radiator , thrmostat and housing, and brakes in rear.

Could it be a faulty or mis wired Radiator coolant sensor? The mech says when that batt went dead it wiped out the computer and that it needs to be re configured. They been on this for a week now....
