hi, ive only just bought a e39 528 touring, all was well for a couple of days then i noticed the rear light were a bit dim, also noticed that when the lights were off with the car running all 3 brake lights were coming on then going off, next thing it wouldnt start and all the lights on the dashboard i.e the mileage etc were goin very dim and the gauges would just drop to zero. car is dead wont turn over?? can anyone point me in the right direction i donk know much a bout cars so will have to have it taken to a garage which i dont really want to be spending as i have just bought it.. there were no warning lights etc on the car but the traction control light came on yesterday could all of this stuff be related?? many thanks in advance..
