There have been a collection of ongoing electrical anomalies with my 1994 318is. These would include:
- Battery drains if the car sits for a day or more (from 12 volts down to 8 and change).
- Analog climate control works intermittently. Occasionally, A/C, defrost, and recycle activate automatically and refuse to shut off. Other times, these systems donít respond at all.
- Engine has twice stalled when headlights were activated.
- When car is first started, digital display of instrument cluster will cut digits in half until another electrical component is turned on.
Iíve discovered an after-market ĎViper C30í security system which may very well be the culprit of some or all of these issues. I would like to disconnect it ASAP. Below is a link to a set of photos describing what Iíve found. Iím not all that electrically inclined so please forgive the very amateurish explanations. Any advice would greatly help.
