Hello everyone. I'm new here and I was hoping someone could give me ideas on what my problem would be.

Two night ago I was driving and I heard " belt noise " not sure what it was. I started driving home and when I came to a light I heard a grinding noise. I turned off the car right away, I starred again and the noise continued I moved it out of the road and I turned it off. I started it again and I opened the hood, I couldn't tell where the noise was coming from but I did see a little bit of smoke and a burning smell. I turned the car off and after that it wouldnt start. The yellow gear came up on the dash. I had the car towed. The next morning I tried starting the car and it did start but the grinding noise was still there. After that it won't start. I checked the starter and it had some burn dust on it and it smelled burned. I got a new starter but it won't crank. The yellow gear light is still on the dash. I checked the fuses and they all still good.

Has anyone had this issue before?

This is the F8x forum... you will have better chances of an answer in the E46 M3 forum. :thumbup:
