My 2005 X3 is having some electrical issues. My overhead light is going on and off and I've even lost my blinkers for a time. It only does it sometimes so I'm guessing
it's a short somewhere. Has anyone had this problem?

It is not a one ***8216;short***8217;. Short circuits blow fuses or start fires. Some BMW***8217;s have electronic-***8216;fuse***8217; overload protection particularly on lighting circuits.

find the fuse for the overhead light, pull it out check the contacts in the fusebox, replace the fuse and monitor , would be my fiirst try, on a 14 year olf car, could even be loose fuses
, so push down on all of them
