Right guys this is my first ever post. :-) just wish it was under better circumstances.
i bought a BMW z3 about 2 months ago. having checked over it and only seeing some small issues nothing which could cause a problem for starting just small things due to its age..
last week i hit a non starting problem. the effects sound like the engine is not getting any fuel which i think is part of the case. so
I have checked the battery which is fine.
I have checked the cables that run to the fuel pump which are not fine. 4 cables (2 earth and 2 live, im guessing. ) which one group of the cables has a constant run of power. the other has none when i turn the key to position 2.
after this i went on the hunt for the relay which is killing me as i have been told it could be in three places, glove box, centre console and the fuse box in the engine bay. i have been in the glove box with finding nothing. anyone tell me where this relay is on this car ?
also one thing that is bothering me which someone might shed a light on. when i turn the key to position 2. the pump is not firing up. however the lights on the speedo are not doing there normal. im only getting the miles and the what looks like the air bag check light. am i right in saying there is more that should turn on at position 2.
anyone that could shed a bit of light, allowing me to get this wee car back on the road i would be over the moon.
