    problem, car keeps dying out??

    ok at first i noticed that the airbag light flasked 3 times and then my car died out for no reason. its a m6 by the way. then the light seemed to go away but the car died when I hit the breaks or played with the clutch. the rpms just drop.

    My shit went crazy the other day, gauges dropped, car died, relays clicking over and over, then i had nothing...turned out to be my battery, it almost blew up. the positive terminal was so hot it burned the shit out of my fingers...not saying it's your battery, but if you've got a bad cell, you're car will do some funky stuff.

    sounds like an electrical connection or maybe a bad ground that is what I would try first

    im guessing this is going to be a pain in the ass to fix rite?. also this isnt a expensive problem if I was going to fix it myself ? because I need money to get my cam working correctly next week.

    it may be as easy as the ground on the battery who really knows till you track it down and if your getting a tune definitly fix the problem first

    I forgot what tha tpart is called, but its a kind of a bowl shape behind where the bake master cylinder is. I know when it goes bad the engine can die out but that isnt it right. because my rpms do not slowly go down. all the electricals just blink and then the car dies. so a short is probably to blame?

    that is your brake booster. It has nothing to do with electrical.

    No SES light? Thinking something that'll make the car die like that should throw a code....

    from the dealer a manual from an auto parts store won't be detailed enough for wiring

    the ses light will only come up for a misfire or something like that a short basically just shuts everything down
