- Hi Resently bought a E28 528i auto 1987 Uk spec. Love driving it but....
A few electrical problem can any one help.
1) Central locking does not work at all. Turn a key and only that
dor/boot lock /unlocks. At aleast I can open it the old fashioned way.
Bought a bentley manuel to help troubleshoot but I am having
difficulty knowing the best place to start. All the other electrical
systems conecected to fuse 5 (8amp white) appear to be working apart
from the cruise control. So if this fuse has blown then surely all
system connected ewith this fuse wouldn't work right?
2) cruiecontrol simpley doesnot work but again all other systems
associated with fuse 6 (8 amp White) also work. The Bently's manual
just give a horrid circuit diagram. I thick I understand just but just
do'nt know were any of the bit are.
3) headlamp washer/wiper system. Not to bothered about this but are
there any obvious faults to check for. Bentley's manual doesnot help
at all here.
Otherewise I do fancy converting it to a manual. Is this possible?
Can any one recomend a good perforance camshaft to increase
power/torque output across a wide range of engine speeds. I use the
car daily so it can't a street racing part.
I hope someome can help with the electrical faults

> 1) Central locking does not work at all.....Can't help with this one!
> 2) Cruise control simply does not work.......Any problems with the instrument cluster? Do all your service lights
work? I may be wrong but I understand that if the SI batteries are
knackered the cruise control won't work.
> 3) headlamp washer/wiper system....This is an easy fix, remove and place in nearest bin.
> I do fancy converting it to a manual. Is this possible?It's possible but easier to sell it and buy a manual.
> Can any one recommend a good performance camshaft........Don't bother, for the most bang for your buck replace your 2.8 with a
3.5, lots about in scrap 6's and 7's.
Hope that's some help Malcolm.
