Can any one help my 528i e39 strated movig the steering wheel up and down while you drive and switching the interior light on, The horn, speedcontrol and radio also stoped working and the airbag light came on any ideas?
only complete one I know of is in the Bentley manual...if you dont have one of those already and you plan on keeping your e39 a while, I would highly suggest getting one. It is two volumes, about $120 for the set, depending on where you get it from.
This happened on my '98 540i this afternoon although for a short period of time. At first, the cruise shut off, then the airbag light came on, and the radio controls finally stopped working. I also noticed the illumination was dim. When I pressed the horn, it didn't work and the illumination went out but came back on.
Any ideas on this? I know it is a short somewhere since everything came back on in an instant and the airbag light went off. Where should I look first?
