Mein Auto: 2006 BMW 330i
2006 BMW 330i won't start

Hey Everyone,

I'm having some problems with my 2006 330i. About a month ago I went to start the car in the morning and it wouldn't start. All the lights came on but, the engine wasn't even trying to turn over. I attempted to jump it but to avail. I talked to a someone about it and they suggested I take my battery to AutoZone to have it tested and I did. They said the battery was no good. I purchased a new battery and once again everything electrical is working but when I push the ignition button nothing happens. It just clicks. I'm at a loss as to what to do next. The night before this happened I was running very low on gas. Could it possibly be the fuel pump?

I guess that's possible but from what I've been told if it were the starter motor it would still try to turn over and it's not doing anything

hey, jesse. contrary to what you have been told, if the starter motor or solenoid is bad, the starter would not turn over. it would just make a "click" noise. you can tap the starter while someone is cranking to see if the starter is bad, unless it is so bad that that wont help. if it were fuel related, the car would crank, but not start. if it were computer related, there would be codes thrown. I would say it's either the starter solenoid/ motor, or the ignition button/ connections. good luck, and let us know what you find.

Sounds, by Golly, like your starter motor/solenoid's kaput!

HERE's good info, and there's a YouTube detailing a trouble-shooting procedure you can do right there at home!

Have a look and good viewing, JesseBusch....please post result.
