Mein Auto: e46 330ci convertible
330ci wont start

hi, i own a 2003 330ci convertible, i drove my car perfectly normal, parked up an switched the engine off to go about my buisiness for 30 mins then came back to start the car and nothing.

i never left anything on to drain the battery

the battery is not flat!

the starter motor is working

i can hear the fuel pumps working

the engine is just not firing up

could this be a fuse blown?

are there any more fuses in the engine bay? i checked them in the glove box

anyhelp would be awsome

thanks

ben

How much gas do you have in the car? I have seen an inaccurate gauge cause this problem (person was out of gas but didn't show out of gas).
