    FYI: Fixed Power Failure Have Engine Light Questn

    I posted a query in mid December when my 89, 735i had a complete power failure. Local mechanic found a dead relay. Also my alternator was shorting out. Rebuilt that. Now my engine light is on all the time. Mechanic said I have to either reset my computer or disconnect the battery until the computer clears. Is there a way to reset the computer? How does this sound for voodoo lights... last night I saw yellow lights flashing in my driveway. I looked outside and saw my hazard lights flashing. What the??? There was no one around. My driveway was snowed in... no footprints in the new snow. Apparently the lights have a life of their own. I pressed the hazard button and the lights went off.

    Have Engine Light Questn

    "Now my engine light is on all the time. Mechanic said I have to either reset my computer or disconnect the battery until the computer clears. Is there a way to reset the computer?"

    I assume it will not help, but just disconnect the battery in front of the passenger side and see what happens. The Motronic, cluster capacitors etc., may have a life of max. 1 hour and then they are empty and all is cleared. Then reconnect the battery again.

    that is very easy, your crash control module is defective, that is located in the fuse box

    Self activating flashers

    Self-activating flashers. An owner of a 1993 BMW may complain that the emergency flashers come on by themselves and can't be shut off with the flasher switch. BMW says this may be caused by a bum transistor in the crash control module, which you need to remove. It's a tall brown case stamped with the words "Crash-Alarm-Geber." Check the manufacturing date stamped on the side in white. The first digit of the code indicates the year ("3" means 1993). The second and third digits indicate the week of manufacture (for example, "08" means eighth week). If the unit was built before the eighth week of 1993, replace it. Use Part No. 61 35 1 384 761 for 318i, 318iS, 325i and 325iS models. Use Part No. 61 35 1 384 732 for the 525i, 530i, 540i, 740i, 740iL, 750iL, 840Ci, 850Ci and 850CSi.

    Great post Shogun! I had this problem until I read this post. I had pulled my flasher relay a week ago because they would go off for no reason. So I checked the date and part number and it turns out I had the wrong part number 732 installed instead of the correct 761. I had 4 more modules as back ups and the newest one is 93 8th week with correct 761 part number.
