Question about 2001 BMW 325

93 BMW 525i won't start, not the battery

My beamer sat for about 3 weeks and 4 days ago i went out and started it up - it started up without any problem. Now, 4 days later, i cannot get the car to start. It is not the battery, i tried to jump it. When i hold the gas in and keep trying to turn it, it sounds like it almost about to start but then doesn't. Any ideas as to what it may be?

    I ended up checking some other posts on other sites and tried one of the ideas. I held the gas in full throttle and turned it for 30 seconds....it finally started! Thanks a bunch though.

My 1995 Pristine fully loaded BMW 525i has a battery issue. It sat for a while and I put a charger on it trickle and the car started fine. The battery slowly died, won't take a charge at all now.


Hi,the battery on most of these cars is in the boot behind the cover on the right hand side as you look in the boot,I hope this is correct,all the best,sorry it sounds to me like you are right about changing the battery.

Have a 93. bmw 525i turn over but won't start and put new fuel pump no spark no fuel recently was just running 2 days ago now won't start


Check for a bad fuse or fuse link built into the cable. check for battery voltage at the fuel relay. check the relay is engaging when the ignition is switched on and off . then check for voltage at the fuel pump by turning the ignition switch on and off, the computer will switch the voltage off if the engine does not start. check fuel pressure and flow, if flow is low replace fuel filter.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.
