Mein Auto: 1984 318i
318i will not start, new starter?? Please help.

Hey guys, i have an unusual problem. I have been driving my car around until one day it didnt want to start. Long story short towed it home and it started right when i got home. This was a brand new starter mind you (3 months old) again it wouldnt start. I tested the blk/yellow wire from the ignition and it was reading 10.8-11.4 volts when te key was turned to start. So i exchanged the starter for another today and it still wont start? Im at my wits end!

The fuel pump relay does make noise sometimes and it seems as though it doesnt work. Also once the pumps stayed running even with key off. I had to pull the pump relay to shut them off. Does this scream a bad ignition switch and or loose connection?

Thanks for the help.
