Help! 325ix Won't start.

Hey guys, thanks in advance for any help that you can give me.

I just bought my first BMW about 3 months ago, and it stopped starting. When I turn the key it hums and clicks three times, but nothing happens. My feeling is that it's something with a sensor or the computer, but here is a rundown of what I've checked or done.

The battery is good.
The car will push start, but won't start back up.
When I turn the key, there isn't any power drain typical of a starter problem. The starter wasn't dragging or anything previous to not starting, it just seems like it isn't getting any power sent to it.
When I push start it, the anti-lock brake light is on. ?
All the fuses are good.
The mass air flow sensor is making a buzzing noise. Normal?

Thanks again, I love my car, and I love it even more when it works. Maybe I should buy a new bike?
