Would really appreciate some help
Long time reader first time poster!! I am the lucky and proud owner of a E60 M5, year 2006. I live in Dubai and so far the car has behaved nicely!!
However, for the past week or so, i have had an electrical issue that the mechanics havent been able to fix. Basically, when i try and start the car, i get all the normal indications, re lights, HUD..when i turn the key, i get just a clicking sound and no start. There are no codes, no warning lights but the HUD indications go blank as i turn the key, then when i release they come back. If i jump the start the car subsequently, it runs fine for that day. However, if i leave the car for a day without driving it, the same problem returns. The BMW boys, made me change the battery and they also had the car for a few days but couldnt find the fault. I am now not really feeling confident with them, as they are charging me!!
Was wondering if anyone else has had the same issue or may have some ideas on areas i should check? The mecahnics reckon the battery drain when car is switched off is 0.250..not sure if that is an indication of anything as i am not possessing many brain cells!!
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
Cheers and thanks alot...
