    Hi all,
    I use my E36 328i 1997 coupe for track days only, so have removed a lot of the interior. In doing so I think I have disconnected or pulled out something which I should'nt have !
    She splutters when I increase the revs and the sidelights and indicators are on but very dim...
    Then as soon as I turn any lights on or engage reverse, thus turning the reverse lights on, she dies instantly??
    Any help would be much appreciated!!
    Cheers, Wellzee!

    check the battery positive jump start cap under the bonnet there are wires tapped off that make sure they are tight
