    Hello! My 2017 BMW 320i was involved in a minor front end accident (no radiator damage. just need to replace bumper and airbag), and after having gotten it back, I can't start the car. The battery is charged, but I can't hear the starter working, nothing is going on to even crank the car. I...
  2. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi everyone. M43B18 engine, I have a really annoying issue. First start of the day is just fine, starts perfectly. After driving it (doesn't matter for how long) the car won't start, starter works but it's not turning the engine. Today I had a weird incident: drove for 20min, turned off the...
  3. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    My 2001 e53 clicks one time when I try and start it and that’s all. When I try and jump it it will start but not stay running. I’m just not sure exactly what to check, and or why this would be happening. My battery is good, I don’t think it’s my alternator. I’m thinking it’s my starter or my...

    I am new to the group and would like thank you in advance for help or tips. I have 2009 528i; A few weeks ago realized my alternator was bad, after buying a new battery. I don't use the car often so I didn't fix it right away and drove it a couple times and the battery died again, got a...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have an 08 528xi and I was jumping my battery from the jump posts in the front of the car from a truck and my friend ended up putting the posi on neg and neg on posi, long story short there was about half a second of welding under my hood and he was quick about it but now the starter won’t...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all, I'm somewhat new to these forums and I'm having some problems with my e60 not starting. One morning I hopped in, turned the key, and the car wouldn't start. I have replaced the battery because the other one was dead. I have a diamond key and when I put it in and turn, cluster lights...
  7. X5 G05 (2019 - Current)
    Has anyone found any documentation about how the system specifically works. From the diagrams online and the references to a starter/generator I am assuming that the the starter/generator is the device on the B58TU engine that looks like a slightly larger version of an alternator and is...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello, so I bought 1998 525tds that didn't start on its own. Changed starter because of broken starter motor wire and now I only get one loud click sound from solenoid. Second starter has 4 connections and my car only has 3 cables: battery, alternator and the signal cable. I think the fourth...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I disconnected my main battery to change the starter on my 09-E92-CA and left it disconnect over night and now all buttons on key fob only lock and it won't unlock, i changed the key fob battery as well to see if it does solve the problem but it didn't, i can lock using the actual metal key and...

  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    2008 X3. Last April I began to notice a bit of a sluggish start. It happened about once a month and began to increase in frequency up to about once a week when it ceased to turn over at all last week. A few clicks is all I get. Battery checks good, tried a jump start anyway, only to get the...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi Pundits and fellow BMW aficionados, I changed one of the spark plugs (one to the left of valvetronic motor) last evening and the other plugs I changed sometime ago. This coil was very hard to do before and it had a rough idle for the past few days, so I took time out to do it yesterday. I...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello All! I have a 2010 BMW X3, 6MT that does not start and stuck at a shop. A week ago my car would not start right away, I would turn the key hear a 'click' (just one small one) and the engine does not start. It got worse to the point where I had to turn the key to off, and back on 20x...
  15. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I was away for a couple weeks and my wife was driving the car, came home and parked it with the steering wheel locked up. I came home unlocked the steering and tried to start the car (it was sitting for maybe 5 days) and nothing happens. Lights and radio come on, it's definitely not a battery...

    2008 550i Automatic w/ Comfort Access - Last few weeks, on occasion I go to start my car, foot on the brake and pressing the Start/Stop button has no effect. The lights come on the dash, the radio & AC come on with one press of the button, and then everything off with the next, the same behavior...

    I have a 2006 bmw 530xi and I replaced the battery and starter about 2 months ago and I at=ctually have the service engine soon since starter replacement. But now for the past few days I've been getting the increased battery discharge. My car takes an extra 2 seconds or so to start for the first...
  19. BMW Coding and Programming
    Thank you so much for the respond. I am using Rheingold. I looked again and couldn't find any ABL for this issue, so I marked DME EME2 BDC and REME as replaced in ISTA/P. Obviously I had to redo all the BDC calibrations (windows, ridehight etc.). It went fine but it didn't fix the problem...
