Repair question for 318ti

im looking at a car to buy right now, its a 318ti and the body and interior look great.

he is selling it for $800 since it has some electrical problem

this is what he says

"engine runs but has electrical problems that keep causing a fuze to blow and that is causing the instrument cluster to not function correctly causing the engine to studder when accelerating as well as cause the sun roof and left door to not function."


does anyone know the cause of this?

what would it cost to repair?

would it be worth it to buy and repair for the price he is selling for?


thanks!

A recent electric change or repair likely has a bad ground (earth).
