Mein Auto: 1992 BMW 735i
1992 735i warning lights

Ok so... my 1992 735i BMW overheated and I think it sort of shorted out? It ran so hot it shut itself down NOW when I start it... it starts up just fine, runs a little rough... BUT the battery light is on (battery is fine) and the parking brake light is on (parking brake is not applied)

Is this BMW code for "you're screwed"...? I was going to unhook the battery and hopefully reset it.

That is seriously hot! Was the vehicle recovered to your place or a repair shop. Could the tow guy have damaged some parts? Has some junk of some sort got into the switch?

Alternator ? - If it got THAT hot under the bonnet then you may have fried it - sorry.
