Mein Auto: 83 733i
Exclamation Stuck in Mississippi

I was backing my 1983 733i out of the carport and it went dead, like it does at first until it has run for a little while. Instead of turning the key to restart, I popped the clutch. Well, now when I turn the key, all electrical systems work as they should, but the car wont even turn over.

I in no ways know anything about cars, Im a 51 yearold female, so I need specific instructions.

Is there a reset button? LOL


Am able to shift gears without mashing down on clutch. ??
