    Default radio and other electronics keep on turning off

    the OBC, radio and other electronics like the windscreen wipers. they go off for 30 seconds to 90 seconds and come back on again as if nothing happened. haven't checked the fuses but if everything comes back on again, I assume they are okay. I checked the fuseable link a while ago next to the battery and it was fine. the car is a e34 535i 1989 model.

    okay, .

    the fusible link may be cracked, and functioning intermittently. i have had this happen to me before. i would change it out before i would worry too much or start tearing things apart.

    okay I looked at Bruno's website and looked at my car, where is the fuseable link located, next to the battery (which I couldn't see) or in the engine compartment?
