Mein Auto: ED 330i
330i - Power on but engine won't start

Recently I have tried to start the car after not driving for a couple of days and nothing happens when I push the start button. Had battery tested but the shop said it was good. Inserting fob into car makes no difference. Eventually car has started every time after a short delay but very frustrating that it doesn't work immediately. This has happened a few times now over the past few months. Electric comes on, I.e. radio, just no starter. No cranking. No error code. Starter had been sounding rough, but still works.

Any thoughts? Will be hard to duplicate at shop...

Recheck the battery voltage.

If its on its first battery and is a 330 06 its due for one.
If its not the battery
IBS could be bad or the starter.
See attachment. Most of the time its the battery.
Check the battery with a voltmeter .
If its not a high use car its a good idea to have a battery tender with one of these.
