This sounds like a battery issue. Have your battery tested.

Help X5 E53 Starts but turns off - I'm Good Now

Issue resolved - I hope!! I think it was a MAF issue. It sounded as if fuel was not flowing properly. When I did some research I read that it may be an airflow problem. Changed the filter and cleaned Massive Airflow unit. Revved the gas and is working ok now. It would crank and start up just find but choke out and turn off. I had just filled the tank Friday evening - no issues driving home. Attempted to go out Sat morning and that's when the problem started. A friend thought that I may have a blockage in my fuel line and thought I should try adding fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank. I haven't done that yet as right now all is ok. I need to do more research before doing anything else. What do you think? fortunately, I was at home when this occurred. It would be awful for it to happen after coming out of sams club with a car load of perishables. The battery appears to be fine but I will check. Thanks!!
