Car won't start

2006 330i auto.

Lights turn on, locks work, windows roll up & down, everything electronic works but the car will not start. There are no warning lights showing an issue either. It's like the motor isn't recognizing the push button.. It has started after waiting an hour, and then I drive home and park it, and then it won't start again. And it's not like the ignition just keeps turning. The motor doesn't make a sound. Please let me know your inputs

Could be your starter. Or the wiring going to your starter.

I believe there is separate, fused circuit going from the battery distribution panel, to the starter. Have that checked out.

There was a recall for the positive battery connection at the fuse panel but your model year does not fall under this recall. The symptoms are very similar though.

Has the car ever stalled on you?

@fdriller9

No the car has never stalled on me before. The car doesn't even go into full accessory mode where all the lights on the console turn on and you're able to use the dome lights.
