HELP! new E36 owner with electrical problems.
just got a 92 318is. this is my first bmw so i'm definitely having to learn. have some electrical issues that i've searched on. one i can't find anything about and the other there was no clear solution to the problem.
the most pressing issue that i have is that i have no brake lights. i currently have the switch unplugged because if you have it plugged in, as soon as you hit the brakes, it will blow the fuse and i lose my fuel and temp guages. i've seen at least one other person with the exact same issue but there was no solution posted.
the other is a window issue. both the driver and passenger windows will only roll up about an inch at a time. i didn't find any posts about this.
any solutions or links to at least the most pressing issue would be greatly appreciated.
