Re: No Crank Issue

Thanks for the clarification re M30 vs S38 always good to learn something new

Using a good external 12volt source to pin 11 looks like the go. Having the battery in the trunk is a bit of a pain

Let us know how you go

Re: No Crank Issue

I have always thought it was pin 11 and pin 14 that were jumped to spin the starter. I have the M30 motor can someone confirm S38 is the same, I thought it was going by the wiring diagrams Pin 14 is hot all the time as it comes from the battery. So jumping pins 11 and 14 spins the starter even with ...

Re: Brake pedal randomly goes to the floor

Sounds like it could be master cylinder to me. A bad brake bomb would show up with different symptoms Did you notice if one of the calipers was binding slightly when driven? If one of the calipers is dragging slightly due to a sticking master cylinder the fluid will heat up in that circuit and can r...

Re: 1985 635CSi - Crank, no start problem

Looks like you found the issue, the obc relay box The issue will be either the relay or the circuit board that the relays are attached to that has dry solder joints or cracks. If you can find the fault you can reflow the solder. It will be easier to just make connection between the two green wires p...

Re: 1985 635CSi - Crank, no start problem

The issue is number 5 in the list. As you have said the problem is that there is no voltage at socket 86 and ground at the main relay. The car will never start with no power to socket 86 at the on or start position. The main relay is closed by grounding pin 86 to pin 85 to allow voltage to flow to t...

Re: Faded Bumpers & Dynamat

I have had good results using Solution Finish for the external trim and rubber.
It actually is absorbed by the material and bonds with it rather than just coating it like most products
Also I have heard good reports on Gtechniq C4 but have not used it
