: I'm having problems with my 1990 525i. When stopped and in gear the car stalls, sometimes it has sort of a hick-up and does not stall, but the next time it hick-ups it does stall. It does it all the time! My car is currently in the garage and they are baffled!!! The computer cannot read any errors, they have replaced the crank sensor but it didn't solve the problem, now they think it is the computer.
: > Has anyone had this problem before?????? Please help!!
Yes. I replace the main relay and the fuel injection relay (I think that is the right one) If you want me to check my records to be sure let me know. My 525 used to stall when slowing down, sometimes when I stopped, sometimes while full tilt boogie, Just stopped. Would not immediately start but would eventually start.
Replacing those relays fixed my problem. The relays are under the black cover on the passenger side at the rear of the engine compartment.
