Hey

ive recently started having a problem with my 93 318i

during driving, at any time, the instrument cluster's lights will all flash up

ABS, Seatbelt, the lot, they stay on for about 3-4 seconds, then the gauges die, the car keeps going but everything just stops on the dials, then after 5-10 seconds it all lights back up again and then works normaly, then at some point it will flash all the lights and die again.

I know nothing about car electrics and have no idea whats going on, if anyone can help it would be appreciated.

regards

clint

check your wiring, sounds like you have a short or a wire loose somewhere.

Does this occur with all your electronics? ie headlights, radio? If not then it's not the alternator.
