Question about 1997 BMW 5 Series
My 97' BMW 528i began a series of electronic failures. Beginning with the radio, AC blower, driver seat and now the steering wheel. All have either stopped working or come on and off!
Hey Drew..my name is Keith....and it could be any number of things when it comes to the electronics..but there is one item that controls all the power to everything..and thats the ignition switch..and it sounds like you might have a bad contact(s) in the ignition switch...but i would do some troubleshooting..it could a corroded connector somewhere or a faulty ground wire somewhere..so..i hope this has helped and i wish i could pin point your problem..but if you need further assistance..write me back
