I've got a 1989 525i and i was driving in the rain the other day and the brake light circuit advisory came up on the onboard computer. I shut the car down and then restarted it and none of my electronic worked radio, windows, locks, windshield wipers, but after about 10 mins everything came back. Now i get in the car and everything will work and then 10 mins into driving everything will shut off, then come back. It's very weird, any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Mark
