Electronics restarting while driving.

Hi All,

I recently got my engine replaced on a 1999 p38.
There are 2 weird things that i have noticed after the swap.
1. Random gearbox fault which stays for few seconds and disappears. Battery is new only 2months old. Amaron.
2. All electronics restarting while driving. The complete system except engine just shuts down and restarts again in few seconds. The trip meter resets also the radio.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the info. Yes, the fuse box was replaced as well. Most probably that might be the issue. Will get it checked.

Loose something.......
Probably a main earth lead, but could also be loose B+...
Check all the connections from battery to block, chassis, and starter motor.
I doubt that they messed with the fuse box, but checking the 3 heavy brown wires on the bottom would not be a bad idea.
They may have omitted completely the cable from the engine block to chassis, so have a look.
If a connection looks OK it may still be loose or corroded, so loosen, clean if needed and re tighten anything you find.
