Hi, i have a 1995 e36 325i with m50 swap. The car drive"s and then as I'm driving the abs light will flash then the car dies i still have headlight's and emergency flashers when this happens. The car will start up right after. I have checked the battery and post for good connections. I have checked the battery ground. please help thank you.

So, you swapped an m50 with an m50?

I'd look at changing your abs relay, it's relatively inexpensive and easy to change.

A 525i has the same engine as a 325i if it's from a e34. If your hazards come on it means you lost power. I would check your engine ground strap, the battery terminals, the negative battery cable to the frame, and check if your dme is grounding through its case. I would also check terminals on the altanator. And the dme relay. I just realised that's ALOT of stuff to check.

You remove the dme from the compartment. Make sure it doesnt hit the power post thats in front of it. Maybe set it on a bag or somthing so its not touching the car. Turn the key to position 2. If the dash acts normal (the check engine light comes on)and the dme relay in the fuse box doesnt buzz your good
