Question about 1994 BMW 5 Series
Hello, have a 1993 E34 525i,having a problem with the front console window switch assembly, lights staying on,also rear left and right window switch lights don`t come on at all.There is power to all window switchs as the power windows are working.Replaced the General & Relay Modules & console switch itself, but to no avail.I do have a Bentley manual but can`t find any reference to the console lights in interior lights/illumination wiring diagram,One other thing i have noticed is when i remove fuse 47 in the rear power box and then replace it,the lights will stay off for about a minute and then come back on,you can hear the Electric power protection relay kick in when they come on. Would be great if can help.

The switch that controls the dip beam can be worn out or broken or the wiring can have a problem. Unless the car has been wrecked and repaired chances are it is the switch.

I have a 1993 bmw 318i and the same problem..no power to the windows or sunroof and no lights on any of the window or sunroof switches.The ANSWER is take the kick panel of the driver side locate the blue relay next to the orange or brown relay.Take the blue relay out and either replace it or take the blue cap off the relay and check the solder to all pins.There is one or more pins where the solder has crack..just buy a soldering gun and some solder .015 diameter and re solder all the cracked solder on the pins and it is back to normal.

you probably dont need all that chek on the stering wheel sometimes they have a fuse in there see if yours has that trust me if yours have that fuse that might be the problem.
