Mein Auto: 1995 318i
Starter Relay Location? 1995 318i

I have been looking for the yellow starter relay for over a week. I have checked under the dash and hood nowhere to be found. Car won't start but the lights come on. Key goes all the way through but no crank.

The starter relay is either above the driver's footwell in the dash or in the kick panel alongside the driver's footwell.
You do realize this problem is more likely that of the EWS disabling the starter, right?

Yes I was thinking that because I have only the spare key not the orginal. But this is the first time this has happened has been working fine
