SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: driver seat and steering wont adjust on my 95 740il

here's what you have to do:
#1. make sure the fuse to the seat adjustment is not blown, its usually a 10 or 15amp fuse.
#2. unscrew the cover to the controls on the driver's seat and make sure the harness is not loose or
broken, if the harness fails to attach to the control board correctly the steering wheel and the
seat adjustment will not work, this harness tends to come loose and even brake over time due to
the constant movement when you get in and out of your car.
I hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: 2001 BMW 740iL is sputtering when I accelarate and shaky when idl

A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.

SOURCE: how to add transmission fluid to 2000 bmw 740il

Hey

They don't put a fill tube on them . It's suppose to be life time fluid. Must be filled from the fill hole and the plug is on the right rear side of the trans.

Hope this has helped

How do i find the fuel pump relay switch on 2000 bmw 740il


I do not have the 740IL manual, but generally the fuel pump relay is either on the right side in the trunk above the battery or behind the glove box. (there is usually a little card indicating which relay it is)

It sounds to me like neither the battery nor the alternator is the problem. The first thing to check is the wire connections at the starter, a starter solenoid if one is used and the battery. Dead alternators never charge the battery and a car with a dead alternator will not ever start without a jump or a charge. A dying starter, if it turns over at all will draw so much current that it will kill the battery in a couple of starts. A final note - many auto parts stores can check the condition of the entire battery - charging - starting system without taking anything off the car and they will do it for free. I would check for loose wires first.

2000 BMW 740IL breaklight


Check the terminals that contact the bulbs, make sure they are clean and making good contact, also if make sure the assembly isn't a knock off version, a lot of the cheap unit use very cheap tin and doesn't serve well as a conductive unit.
