Toyota avensis aternator broke now wont start

on newer models the battery is the main support for the vehicle, even the fuel. The brain has to function properly in order to make the rest of the car opperate. so have the alternater checked out and battery for a dead cell.If thats not the problem maybe the fuel pump is bad or the fuel filter is bad,butdon't think so .Your charging is the problem i'm sure, check that first

Car would,nt start after being stuck in snow loads of power there AA thought it might be fuel pump but but found not to be that. Electrics seem to be fine but still will not start any ideas.

Unfortunately, snow my have gotten jammed into sensitive electrical connections or actually disconnected a connection.
The BMW will need to be warmed up and all the snow melted so a diagnosis can be preformed.
Way to many possibilities to guess at.
The BMW's computer will help in the trouble shooting process after it has been dried out.

Loss in fuel pressure

Need a new battery first, or charge the battery...if the battery is over 3 years old, I would just replace it, also may need a higher output alternator with more amps, to run the electronic fuel injection, fuel pump, and ignition etc...

I had the same problem with the suspension on an o2 X5 Sport,it was the stabiliser pump in the rear,Range rover is the same pump and is cheaper than the BMW part,they also do an exchange unit.
