    Hi all,

    Having just bought a 750iL 2001 E38 V12 5400cc, I am new to the forum.

    Unfortunately, I had a problem with the car in that a few days ago, I lost complete power. Fortunately I was stuck in traffic. I could not even get the hazard warning lights on.

    The garage said it was due to a faulty electric switch (part number 330405480783). This is apparentlynext to the batteries in the boot. Does this sound right and if so does anyone know where I can get one from and approximately how much it will cost?

    Finally, anyone know where I can get a manual from?

    Thanks for ur help
