Mein Auto: 1988 BMW 528e
Fuse-o-rama Drama

Hi there,

I am trying to get some answers about a problem I am having. My fuel pump shuts down while driving from time to time, rendering me immobile. I am pretty sure the problem is electrical in nature as I found a temporary solution which is to pull another 8 amp fuse out. If I have all the fuses in correctly, the fuel pump shuts off after a while. When I pull an 8 amp fuse, it starts up just fine. Is there a simple solution to this issue? I have replaced all the fuses with new ones and made sure they are getting good contact.

I would like to have use of all the electricals and hope I am not damaging something by running it without the fuse.

Thanks!

Replace the fuel pump relay and if you haven't yet, the main relay also.
