JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a BMW. The BMW Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: tried finding a neutral safety switch, i hooked the auto shifter back up nd put it in park so maybe it would start but i get nothing.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the BMW Mechanic should know about your BMW?
Customer: i think thats it, all 92 non vanos engine
wiring, 92 non vanos engine, ecu but was auto, do not have the auto harness only have the stick harness but all in a 94 vanos chassis.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the BMW Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
