No power to radio and on board computer

Asked by May 25, 2017 at 03:27 PM about the 1989 BMW 3 Series 325i Convertible RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got a new paint job on my 89 325i convertible.  Now my radio and on
board computer have no power.  Any ideas?

1 Answer


Fuses, Relays, or try a bulkhead plug. When they painted the car they may have unplugged the harness to paint and seal around it. Too many guesses on that old a car with no computer to self diagnose the harness with the problem. You have to just start at one end and work our way out or in to the accessory. Good Luck.
