1998 BMW 740IL WILL NOT START

While attempting to start 1998 BMW 740IL it failed to start. The ligts in the cabin came on. However, the clock reset and the lights on the radio and a/c were dim. Additionally there is a clicking sound when I attempt to start the car and the lights temporarily go dim everytime I attempt to start it. Your assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem on my 2001 740il. I replaced the battery and it cranked no problem and started. I went out 2 days later and the car wouldn't strat again and it wouldn't even jump start. Any oidea what this could be? All interior accessory lights work.

This happened to mine.

I took it back to the place where i bought it and at this time i still had warranty on it, they went and looked through it and found that the battery cables were bad.

Hope this helps

Sounds like a battery fault, not holding a charge well

1998 bmw 740il will not start even with new a battery


If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
