325i: I have a 321I 1994 that has had complete wiring done,

Customer Question

I have a 321I 1994 that has had complete wiring done, but after the mechanic replace the wires there is a ground problem and the marjority of the time it will not start after turning it off or sometimes it will shut down when driving. To bypass we have pulled a wire from under the steering to ground to something like the side of the door metal to start. The mechanic doesn't seem to know what else to do so we are stuck starting it this way.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If this issue here only occurred after the wiring was done I would have the wiring install/repair checked to see if the wiring was all connected properly.If there is an issue with the way the wiring was done the wiring will need installed properly to correct this fault.
Thanks Pete
