Mein Auto: 528i
2008 528i won't start

My 2008 528i (E60 sedan) all of sudden did not start, jump start did not help. Battery is OK.
Insert key, push start button, all things light up OK, heard the fuel pump going but no crank and dead silence.
Got these error code from the code reader:
P22AA (generic code):Nitrogen Oxides Sensor 2, bank 1
P3232: (bmw code): control module monitoring ignition timing plausibility.
P3030: (bmw code): O2 sensor internal resistance measurement path adaptation value too
high.
Anyone knows if these errors prevent it from starting, cranking?
Remove ibs (intelligent battery sensor) at the negative terminal of battery as someone suggested but did not help.
Check the ism box (integrated supply module) as suggested by someone but my car does not have one, it's only for 8 cylinder engine.
I think it is the starter and I tried to check if the 12V signal gets to the solenoid of the starter but I could not reach it, it's located way below the manifold.
Anyone knows any other way to check if the starter is bad or any other thing I can check to see if it's other problem.
Thanks in advance,

Mein Auto: 528xi
Same thing happened to me a couple years ago with my 2008 528xi, although it seemed like it cranked slower a couple times before it wouldn't crank at all. I charged the battery, looked at fuses, all the usual stuff. Finally I bit the bullet and replaced the starter. That fixed it!. Not too bad of a job, have to unbolt & move aside the intake manifold, but that's not a big deal. Biggest challenge is one of the starter bolts comes in from the back side, not a lot of clearance between the bolt head & firewall, I wasn't able to get a torque wrench on it. That drove me crazy as I'm a fanatic about torquing every bolt.

Thanks for reply. I also did the usual stuff as you did. I just want to make sure it's the starter before I send it to the shop as I would not change it. It is a big job for me.
