Hello everyone,
I`m a new guy here, I`m from CA and drive 1994 540 A. To make a long story short: All power-using devices are dead: windows, mirrors, vipers, radio, on-board display, central locking, sunroof.... lights are OK, the only thing that works.. Fuses are OK, just checked them. There were couple times when everything just shut and then came back to normal a day after, but now it`s just gone, with no recovery signs. ghead ghead ghead Everything died at once, and I used to hear lousy "tic-tac" noise under steering column.. Could it be thet there`s a relay over there that controls all those power-operated devices? Any ideas? Thanks a lot... -

I think there might be a power shut off inside somewhere. Usually a button with a red strip showing when it is pressed. Its pretty much a breaker for the interior. Try locating that first.
