Does the E36 suffer from the same ignition switch problems as the E39 where part of the "diagnosis" is to turn on the passenger visor mirror light?
- IGNITION SWITCH FAILS: ignition switch that spins aimlessly, causing all sorts of electrical gremlins, some actually changing when the passenger visor light is turned on (0) (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11)
