I have a 2003 BMW 325xi. I know almost nothing about cars.
I took my car to the dealer last week because the engine was riding
very rough; the dealer diagnosed the problem as a cylinder not working
(due to issues with a coil).
A few days after I left the dealer, the problem came back, and I took
the car back to the dealer again. This time, they said that there is
a short in the electrical system and that they will need to replace
the electrical harness to fix the problem. They said that it could
take them 4-5 hours to replac the harness.
My questions are:
- Does this sound right?
- What is en electrical harness, and where is it located?
- What does replacing an electrical harness entail? WIll the dealer
have to remove my dash, carpeting, or door panels?
Thank you for your help.
