    Completely dies when driving, will restart after a long break?

    Hi, My 1989 635 will completely shut down when driving. Everything goes off electrically. After some time, hour or so it may restart. It will idle forever, and around town there are no issues. I get on a highway and the whole thing goes dead. Any thoughts beside replacing all the wiring?

    No power whatsoever? As in all the electricity is out? Check and clean all your connections in the engine bay first.

    This happened to me with my 1988 BMW R100RT motorcycle. It turned out to be a cracked ignition coil. Open circuited when it got warm, worked again when cold.

    Let us know.

    Sounds like a clogged catalytic converter. My son had that happen on his 633. We tried everything and this was the last resort. Right after his car died we unscrewed the converter and the car started right up and had full power. Loud but powerful.

    Check crankshaft position sensor, and the bracket for it. Had the bracket break on my '88, allowing the sensor to move away from the shaft.
