scotty123 is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi there,

My (trusty!) BMW 730e 1988 broke down yesterday and I'd really appreciate some help/advice.

After driving 400 miles round trip on the motorway (it was raining all day!) the yellow abs light appeared on the dash... I ignored for about 2 mins.... then the steering felt juddery... until the power steering packed in all together. I managed to indicate into a layby... whereupon my indicators packed up and then the engine cut out.

I tried to restart but the engine would not fire... I left it for about 10 mins and all seemed fine... I managed to drive for about 2 miles before it all happened again.

Do any of you know how I can fix this... or where to begin to look.

I sat in the car today with my fingers crossed... and again... the 1st sign of trouble was the abs light... closely followed by the power steering going juddery.

All advice appreciated.

Thanks

When the alternator or battery go South you will get an ABS light as well as several other lights. get a electrical system check ASAP.
