Re: [bmw e28] Hi beam Lo beam switching on its own
- Yes I had the exact same problem last year with my 1986 528e. It seamed to
be a very old problem that had been ignored and "Mickey moused" to patch the
problem and over time well the patch stopped working. At one point the high
beams would constantly come on(not good at night if you are on the road
going past a police officer and you start flashing your high beams at them
Well in the past if I bent the control arm that also controls the OBC a
little it would stop but that weekend the metal and it fell off at one point
and I had to replace the switch. I found one really cheap from
www.theeurodepot.com and its not to touch to install.

> relay.For the last couple of Canadian winters, I was having
a nagging relay problem. Driving along and all of a
sudden the car dies. After some fiddling, I found it
to be the fuel relay. I'd remove it, scrap the crude
off the contacts, try to blow the goop out of the fuse
box, reinstall, and fire it up.
As impressed as I am with BMW design, I think the fuse
box and relay layout in our cars sucks! Very
susceptible to the environment, not to mention the
heat-cycling from the motor. Good 'ole Bosch
At some point, I'm going to replace the half-melted
box with a new one.
So try changing the relays before disassembling the
