    Hello Members: My roommates Ford Country Squire sedan has been needing an occasional jump-start from my vehicle ('07 328xi coupe). Is this practice likely to damage my battery or any other electronics? Please advise. Thanks.

    My fiance is calling and tried to boost a friend's car. I don't think they did it right because the other car did not start and her x3 have a warning saying something along the lines of "ignition error. Do not turn off engine. Engine may not be able to restart", but the engine want actually on...

    My 2000 328 has been having some electrical problems lately. The battery dies on me almost once a week. I changed the battery for a new one on Saturday and the car didn't start on Wednesday. The alternator has been checked an its working fine. I'm guessing there is an electrical leak somewhere...

    OK, long story but here it goes (hopefully the length will help with figuring out what is going on)... I drove my car to the airport very early on the 24th - about 4am. I parked it in an uncovered, fully outdoor, long-term parking area. Around midnight on the 27th, I come back to the car to...

    Hello, I have read a ton of threads, but to no avail. My 2000 Bmw 528i auto sports package 64000 miles will start fine, but sometimes, it will not restart. At first there is a click from the starter, but very quickly, it goes to nothing. I bought a new battery, and I thought everything was fine...

    I recently parked outdoors in 0 degree weather for 2 weeks and returned to find the battery run down. The parking garage gave me a jump start, and after a couple attempts the car ran fine. I immediately noticed some wierd electrical issues: - Radio dies not work (although buttons are backlit...
  14. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Dead battery in 745i after week long trip, and despite all the stellar advice in this forum to flip the switch in the trunk to prevent battery discharge, of course I didn’t do that! So here is the issue: given the spot where I parked in advance of the trip, the hood cannot be opened high...
