Pressure washed engine compartment now noNE of the lights on the car work any more plz help

The car seems to be running fine and the temperature gauge read right between the red and blue indicators....normal..

I have a 92 735i BMW and it won't start. What could be the causes why it won't start?

Ok, I restored the whole engine, almost everyhting is new inside, rebuilt the whole thing, the oil pump is ok, the problem is that the pressure pops my camshaft seal out and my distrtibutor fills with oil, this happens after about a minute after the engine starts, could it be a faulty pressure relief valve ?, or something obstructed ?... my 735 is 1988 E32 euro, (the year of the menu did not go that fr back).

i jacked car in the air the cv boot and shaft look ok ,but the driveshaft has some movement ..what should i check

a 1988 735i.

Wipers won't work even though fuse is fine

the stop light in the windshield works but the rest of rear stop lights do not. I replace the bulbs and still nothing

Can I get to the shifter linkage through the shift lever cover? Do I have to access it from under the car? If it's through the cover how do I remove the cover. I've removed the rear part of the cover that houses the cigarette lighter and blower vents and also have removed the rear bolt that holds down the front part of the cover but can't figure out how to remove whatever else is holding down the front part. I have removed the shift "T" handle already. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

after battery died I cannot open the door Key turns but door will not open

When this happens I have to pull over because the car will slow down and I have to turn off key and then turn back on and then will drive ok. It is almost like something has to reset in the transmission

Is this a simple repair? I found the whole gasket online for $20.

If I drive, it will run until I stop for a light. as soon as I stop for a light, it will stall, and not restart.
It is an automatic. I cannot us the car at all without risk of getting stuck.

The right headlight and fog light do not work. I have tried replacing the bulbs, checked the wiring, and replaced the switch on the interior dash. None of these seemed to work.

this car was well taken care of and i drove to work the other day and smoked a cig.w/ac on, as always, and bofore i was done it was dinging saying coolant temp. so i shut off car and waited 2hrs. Then tried to add water but was full.
