When car warms up or after it been ran for a few minutes and fails to start it's likely your starter. Is the starter OEM (Bosch) or a rebuild or aftermarket starter? I've had this issue and it was starters built with cheap parts that didn't stand up to heat. You need a genuine BMW (Bosch) starter to troubleshoot.View attachment 1027990 hello, i'm new here and i need help, i'm from brazil and here we don't have good mechanics, my e60 550i 2008 has trouble connecting for 3 years and i never find the problem, before i rarely had this problem, but now every day it happens that. First start of the day the car always works, the second start sometimes, third start never starts, I think the car heats up and can no longer work, I hear a click only but the car does not try to start ... the panel works, the windows work but the car won't start, sometimes if I wait 10, 20 minutes, when I try to start, it works, sometimes it will only start if I jump. On the panel there is an error in the active steering, sometimes others, but always active steering, I have already changed 2x starter motor, I have changed alternator, I have tested ibs, I have changed several modules, new registered battery, nothing works ... I don't know what else to do . Can someone help me ? I already thought about abandoning that car, I just had problems and spent a lot, the car always in the workshop.
it is of good quality, but it is not original, I read in another conversation that the k2003a relay often causes this problem! I bought a new one, this week I'm going to testWhen car warms up or after it been ran for a few minutes and fails to start it's likely your starter.

yes, i've read several problems but i never find the error, it makes no difference, any day it works very well, but in the 2nd or 3rd match it doesn't work ... the weather doesn't make a difference. if I wait 20 minutes, the car usually runs.Did you try reading the error codes when the car does not start?
Also, you said it also start on the first try. Does it matter if it is hot or cold day? Or you only have issue when the engine is hot?
I'm lost, I've tried everything ... I'm going to take this testso it seems like it is sensitive to the engine temperature, not the ambient temp. I doubt it is the relay as I understand the relay is far from the engine. It is probably your starter since it is attached to the engine. I don't know the location of the starter in this engine. If you can access it, you can get yourself a can of freeze spray. When the car does not start, spray the starter and see if it fixes the problem.
Another idea is connect wires to the starter terminal to somewhere you can easily access. When the car does not start, connect a test light or a DMM and find out if the starter is getting a signal.
This should narrow down what might be your issue.
Again, it is your starter. It doesn't matter how many reconditioned/remanufactured starters you have installed. They are built with poor quality parts. Get a used genuine BMW starter, open it up and clean, lube and if need be install new brushes from a quality source.[QUOTE = "GalDemSuga, postagem: 13530605, membro: 859167"]
Não é o relé, é o seu iniciador. A razão pela qual o carro dá partida após 20 ou 30 minutos é porque ele esfriou.
I've already changed the initiator 2x ... maybe it's the solenoid wiring for the initiator, because every time I try to connect and it doesn't work I hear a click, it's very frustrating not to find this problem
