When I drive the car runs without issues until the speedometer starts to go crazy as well as a few other gages. Within minutes of that happening the cart stalls and cannot be started without a jump start or charging the battery. Allowing the car to idle or to drive with everything off allows the battery to recharge.
I have not been able to isolate where the drain is.
Can you provide me any guideance on where BMW's may have had a shorting problem, or any information on what you think the issue is.
I have checked for current draw at the fuse box in the engine compartment and cannot find a circuit that is draining while the car is off.
The issue must be a high drain to make the battery go dead whilr the charging system id running. I have a new battery and alternator and still the same problem.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
