Hello all, I backed my car up about 2 feet and it shut off completely! no power to anything in the car. the car doesn't even make any noises when i try to start it, no crank not ticking nothing! i checked Relay fuses under the hood and all other fuses and all are good. I bought brand new battery and still no power, i even was given a jump and still nothing!

You posted on the wrong forum. You car is an E34 not an E28. Anyway, there is a fusible link under the rear seat that tend to crack. Check that one first. After that, check voltage at the battery, it should be at least 12 volts without the engine running and 14 with it running. Chech all cables and make sure they are ok and tight.
