03/1988 750iL E32 from Shoreline
I started the car yesterday to clean the garage, as I was putting it away
I noticed the EML light did not come on for two seconds like it would
normally do, also temp guage does not work nor can I output obc data to
cluster, although the oil light etc stil work.
Anyway, I drove
it up and down the road and it would not go over about 10kmh, I have
fitted new battery recently and the drivers door lock failed, after I
tried to resolder the connectors as it had the lock/unlock problem.
idles slightly rough and when you pull the MAF connectors, both banks
stumble then run as normal so it is not on 6 cylinders. <<Not limp mode then>>
I am charging the battery as the OBC gave 12.09v at key in ignition not started, and 13.5v at idle.
the eml lights on the console and they are fine, I will look at the X20
and 21 connectors << connections in X20/21 can be become loose
>> , it is strange that the obd display in the console does not
light up as well as the eml, I will look for any fuses on the way
to/from there as well.
(NEXT DAY) found problem Fuse number 20 under the bonnet where the lamp module sits was the culprit,
now all the lights come on and the drivers door locks ;-)
I love it when a 15c fuse can render a car unusable.
