Question about 2005 BMW X5
have been having trouble with the car not starting. it will crank and fire quickly but not start . after many tries it will eventually start. sometimes it will stall after a few minutes of driving and other times it will drive just fine. i have replaced the fuel filter spark plugs. could it be the camshaft sensor or the crankshaft sensor? I have trouble starting my X5. It will start fine some times, other times it will not start at all to the point it has to be towed to the garage. The mechanics are baffled. Any thoughts? I have the same problem with a 2005 X5 4.4. It cranks just fine (not a battery issue) but the fire just doesn't catch. I've had this problem twice in the past week. The first tow to the BMW dealer, they replaced something on the starter. I picked it up and the exact same thing happened the next day. Once again towed to the dealer, but this time they haven't been able to duplicate the problem — its started every time!
Hi. did you try to start with the orther key, all bimmer the keys has immobilizer ( key security system build in), some time it lost memory by it self.
