eclipsevrl is an unknown quantity at this point

fuel pump relay shorted out
1997 328iC convertible
electrical wiring harness short problem

110k miles, automatic transmission, no check engine light.

Last week I started up my car and it stalled out in the parking lot. I attempted to start it again, and it ran for a few mins, and stalled out again.

The next thing I know, I noticed a burning wire smell and saw little smoke inside the car.

I have located the wire harness by the top of the hood/dash area had a shorted-out wire, and also my fuel pump relay burned out.

Everything is fuctioning fine, I know the car won't start because no power is going to the fuel pump; thus, no fuel pressure.

Has anyone had this problem with this model? Any advise would be appricated.

Thanks in advance,
