I have a 1991 850 CI with 79,000 miles on it. Recently I have had a malfunction where the windows, wipers, signals, ect. stopped. The car would start but nothing else would operate. I turned the car off and got out and heard a clicking noise. After a while the noise stopped; however, the fuel pump must have continued to pump because I could smell gas. Has anyone else had this problem? I took it to the dealer, they said the problem would have to duplicate in order for them to correct it. I have a couple small issues with the windows since, but not to the severity of this particular instance.

Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
John

John,
I have never owned a 850 (wonderful car though) however most BMW's that I have owned have electrical issues at one point or the other. I would check all the basic things first like your fuses and relays, then I would move on to tracing wires looking for a short or place that maybe a fusible link burned up. Good luck
