Mein Auto: 330ci
Help- my 330 won't start

My 330ci, 2001, won't start. The headlights blink rapidly when I turn the key on. My oil light came on a few days ago. I check the oil and it was low. I added oil, but the car still won't start. I would like to avoid paying for a tow to the dealer. Any advice on how to get the car to start???

Thanks in advance.

Headlights blinking sounds like a nearly-dead battery. Try charging it or getting a jump start (read the precautions in the owner's manual first).
