Mein Auto: 06 750LI
Dave Pod

I have a 06 750LI used mainly during summer months and on long trips, very seldom on short trips as both my wife and I are retired. We have us another vehicle (SUV) Very low mileage..less than 100K kms. Parked most winter months inside with a very low trickle charger. Battery new a year ago. Tried starting after about 40 days (which I always start and take on short drives weather permitting) at least every month or so but this last time the push button turns everything on but it does not start. I even tried the slot for the key which is not required and this again turns everything on but pushing the start button with the brake on....nothing.
I'm thinking this has to be something simple.

Is the car even trying to crank? If not it could be the IVM module located under the air filter. This is apparently a common issue now that our cars are getting a tad old
