- Hi I have a 1987 M10 engined 518i
Im having a problem getting alternator charge back to the battery
Its last point of travel seems to be at the starter motor solenoid.
but goes no further. Failing to reach the battery. Does anyone know if
the thick positive cable running from battery to solenoid should act as
both power to starter and return feed from Alternator to battery?
- I had the post where the positive cable attaches to the starter solenoid go
rusty, and the car wouldn't start hot. Start cleaning the connections,
and/or pull the alternator and get it checked at a parts store.
See if realOEM site shows a picture. I sold my e28, or I'd go look for you.
