Question about 1994 BMW 3 Series
When I turn the key, first I get real bright lights on the dash, then when I continue turning the key to turn the engine, the lights go dim and I hear a clicking sound. Then when I quit turning the key the lights are bright again. I noticed that when this happens my time and date are cleared and I have to reset them, as if the battery has been disconnected. I have been able to start with a jump, starter sounds ok, had the battery checked and it is in good shape. The battery terminals are spotless with no corrossion. I am a single divorced mom with little money.....I'm trying to go from cheapest first. I feel I should check the voltage regulator next then the altenator (I have ordered a repair manual....but won't be here for a week). HELP PLEASE!!! Thank you so much for your kindness in helping me. Jill PS - I recently had to have an electrical short in my steering column fixed (my emerg.flashers wouldn't turn off and no blinkers) along with an issue with my intermittant wiper mode (which would fail and my wipers would quit until I turned off and restarted my engine). Don't know if this is a related issue or not.
