2001 BMW 325 how do i charge the battery

A friend borrowed my car and left the lights on overnight, so I need to charge the battery.

I'm having trouble getting the battery cover off after removing the two obvious plastic bolts.

Also, when peeking under the battery cover, I'm having trouble seeing how I would access the charging points.

ANyone have experience with charging this battery?

If you look around the engine compartment you will see a sort of large silver nut on one of the inner wings. This is for the negative lead. Now if you search around a bit more you will find a sort of square black cover with an arrow type electrical sign. Lift the top off the cover and you will see a similar type nut. This is the positive. i.e. you do not need to access the battery tocharge or jump start the car.

Sounds like you have a dead battery. Try recharging the battery or get someone with jumper cables to give you a jump. If your battery dies again after driving for at least an hour you likely need a new battery. If the battery in the car is the original, it's time to replace it anyway.

Where can i find the battery for the key in a 2001 bmw 325ci, i want to replace it myself just need to find the battery not found in any store whatsoever


Hi these do not have a battery that you replace, the battery is charged when the key is in the ignitionso the more you use it the more it charges thats why when you have more than one of these keyes you are supposed to alternate there useagge to give each an equal share of charging, if your key is not working it might just need a re-program hope this helps

I have a 2001 BMW 325 and the service engine soon light won't shut off.


SES lights are mostly just "HEY I NEED AN OIL CHANGE" warnings...or some other standard maintenance. Only your dealer or an independent shop with BMW OEM CDI tools can reset this.

Hi Stuart, the battery light indicates that the alternator is not charging. The alternator needs to be repaired or replaced in the case where the alternator is the problem. Before replacing the alternator you might want to check your fuses. It might be that one of the main fuses blew, causing the alternator not to charge. The traction control light will come on if it detects a problem with the supply voltage to the control unit caused by the alternator not charging.
