2003 BMW 745i Wont start
One morning i heard a clicking noise under the hood but it went away after a couple minutes. Later that day on my way from work it did the same thing, this time when i got home it was louder When i turned the car off i try'd to crank it again and it only got weaker and weaker, and then it died. I also smelled a burning ELECTRICAL smell under the hood when it died. Now when i try to start i can only hear a clicking noise under the hood. Could the motor be locked or the COULD IT BE THE FLYWHEEL AND THE STARTER WENT BAD ]? No codes popped up or warnings?!

Charge your battery, & try to see what will happen. If the battery is to low on voltage, the engine will not crank. While trying to crank the engine, have someone look under the hood to see if the engine is turning.

Good Luck!

One more time: remove the belt and try to spin ur alternator i bet its stuck. Dont try to start the car with bad alternator. It wont start and u will cause more problems. Find my thread * car died* and u will see what i went through.
