Electrical issues... dont we all.

Electrical is a very touchy subject with the 8. Its like an enigma where one question can lead to 30 anwsers like one relay can affect other things. What I did is replace my original relays with new ones. I took a pic with my camera on my cell phone and got all of the same colors as the ones in the trunk. also consider replacing the BMW fuses with SAE fuses. Better I think.

That is what worked for me. Hope this helps.

Start from the begining. First check your batteries. Sounds cheekey but these cars crave power. Thats why they have two. Check to see if there are good connections in your trunk. Check the positive connetions as well as the ground on both ends. Check to see if they have a good charge or hold a good charge. Then check your charging system. Make sure you are charging a good 14 amps. If not this can cause you not get full operations of some systems. Also scroll down below this thread to look at similar problems. One just might fit yours. Watch and see ur fix will be a simple one.
