Hey there! I'm new here, so a little introduction;
I've bought a 1997 E39 525tds touring, green with cream leather and have been driving it for 10.000km now, mileage is 290.000km, without any problems.
Since it beginning to rain, the whiper stopt working for now and then. After changing the relais, and checking everything
(thanks to this site!), the garage read out the computer but couldn't find anything but "fault in circuit". He's been searching for 2 weeks, didn''t find a thing. Now, for 2 days, the wipers have started working again, but not how they should be. There no speed in fastest position, and in normal continues position, they go in interval. I cannot trust them on working....
I've tried fixing it, but i've messed up something. I've used 12v from the wires that are being split in 2 by a little cube on the side of the box and blown a fuse or something. Now, there's no pre-heating on the glowsparks but the fuse of the unit is still intact, no 12v on the fuses of the computer in the box and the car won't start (because it's not pre-heating, boardcomputer just stays black for the time it should be preheating). This image shows the fuses, which don't have 12v, with of without ignition on.
These are the wires that used to give 12v, but now don't.
the 2 big red wires with 12v, feeding something, don't have 12v anymore. Can't find blown fuses, 12v on the preheating box still there, but the computer doesn't seem to get 12v.
Who nows where to seach? I've lost it completely and didn't drive my beloved E39 for 3 weeks now!!! Where is the fuse for the two red wires, that has to be blown?
