I have a j 1992 3 series. 320i.

It has stalled on me and now wont start. I have a feeling that is is atleast one relay causing the problem.

In the fuse tray. looking over the passenger side front wing into the engine compartment, there are 12 relays. 3 on the top row (under their own little cover)
then a row of 6 then a row of 3 more (plus 3 spaces for extra relays).

Does any one have a mapping diagram that maps the various relays to their functions??

Please help, suppose I need to get to work!!!
Andy

Isn't the relay diagram located on the inside of the relay box lid? I am pretty sure my 96 318i has it there. No reason why they would change it around at all within two years.
