Welcome to Bimmerfest!

I moved your question to the E9X forum where you should get an answer.

My guess is the crank position sensor is shot. If the CPU can't see the crank turning ( through the crank position sensor) it won't turn on the fuel pump, won't fire the injectors, and won't fire the spark plugs.

Most these symptoms, the most common they replaced is the crankshaft sensor.

Don't mix up the camshaft sensor with crankshaft sensor. These are different animals......

Would make quite a bit more sense to read stored error codes before discharging gun in dark. Then you'll know if you're doing the right thing. Or did you use a BMW capable reader? A code should've been stored.

But before even that, THIS

Calwaterboy due, the code reader that I used did bmw's from 1989 and up. I have not located the crank sensor yet but I know that the cam sensor is at the front of the engine on the cylinder head. Looks like it got 4 sensors that uses the cam.

'89? Hmmmmm. Maybe, maybe not - which reader?

[click here for crankshaft position sensor DIY]

Sensor's just a hall sensor outputting a 5v square wave, I think!

....plus that CPS isn't an easy "lean in and swap". Its under the manifold and starter towards the back of the engine.

Naw - you need a unit that can read BMW proprietary, shadow, and hidden codes.

EU702 noted [in Chinglish] as discontinued - use a BT Scanner or GT1.
