Question about 1989 BMW 5 Series
My son has a 1989 525i and it overheated while he was driving it. He pulled over quickly. We have replaced the raditator and hoses but the car won't start...is there a reset button or something that has to be done for it to start...it has power when you turn the key but does not do anything else
Engine could be seized...:( sorry...or a hose could have blown (radiator) and hurt or disconnected a main electrical line ...check fuses battery and cables..there is a bulkhead power junction on firewall high rt. side(passenger) immediately next to engine..battery located under back seat passenger side...first thing though..make sure you can turn the motor over by hand (breaker bar on nut at crank pulley) to determine if it is not siezed...good luck
