SOURCE: 1999 BMW 323i Will not start

Its not worth 3,000 if it won't start, not a 3 series. MAYBE give him 1500- no start problems are very hard to diagnose in these cars.

SOURCE: following some fuel problems on a bmw 323ci, I've

there is an inertia switch that shuts the fuel pump off in the event of a accident. normally located in the trunk when front engine cars are concerned, but it could also be located behind the kick panel which is by your feet below the dash, probably on the passenger side. consult the owners manual for the location.
the switch should only need to be reset if you were in an accident. what work was done to the fuel system? have you checked fuses and relays?

try a second key before you start thinking of a failed starter as the key code may not match and the immobilization system maybe rejecting the current key,

The petrol pump keeps switching on very minute and even while the car is off and drains the battery

Intermittent problems are very difficult to deal with. Even the best techs can flounder in this situation. I do see that by throwing parts at it you are going to be paying a lot of money when the problem may be found due to a accident at some point where the wires were damaged or even that a ground in a different circuit feeding back through that circuit due to a bad ground.

You may try a BMW owners forum and see if they may have experienced this issue. Here is one;

Just bought a citroen c4, 1600 hdi it is making a humming noise. sounds like its coming from the engine.the more exceleration the louder it gets.please help

my heart goes out to anyone that buys a French car.
what a bad deal that is....

first off never drive a car with bad sounds, like that.
it can cascade or even cause and accident.
and point 2,ever ask a web bunny to help fix a engine.
i cant see it, touch it ,hear it or drive it nor do the tests.
finding noise is a human hands on deal.
find a mechanic. here in USA we use ASE certified mechs,

find a mech and just ask him/her to listen. or fail big time.

My jaguar got hit and after that i try to start it and it says security failure.what should i do ?i need help.thank you

It is likely the fuel pump safety switch, search for a solution online but, some0most cars this happens to after an accedent for obvious reasons. Probably not a big deal, the dealer of a shop may even be able to help over the phone or even maybe just disconnect the neg. battery terminal and this may reset it. Good Luck

My 540i BMW wont start but it is not the batteries posts and the batteries are full.could it be the relay or the starter?

Yes, here is a test you can do. With the car in park or neutral and the parking brake on, short the hot terminal (one with the big red wire attached) of the starter solenoid to the smaller (ignition switch) terminal. Be careful not to let your screwdriver touch anything else, especially do not touch the big ground terminal closest to the starter motor. If the motor does not crank, the starter/solenoid is not working. If the motor cranks the engine, your ignition switch, starter fuse, or relay is bad or the start wire is open. You can further troubleshoot this by interrogating the starter relay (see tip at, but only some cars have a starter relay.

Airbag light wont there an easy solution or could this run into big money...needs to be sorted asap

Looks like your going to have to bring it to a dealer. There isn't much you can do to repair an air bag fault on a BMW without using an oem level scan tool. Most Independent repair shops won't have the equipment needed to diagnose it. It could run into big money but usually air bag faults are either sensors or the clock spring in the steering column. In either case, keep in mind with the air bag light on the air bag system is disabled.

Bmw 1988 325is engine stops running sometimes - not lack of fuel or battery, new fuel pump. Sometimes wont start, starter motor working well, good battery. Replaced fuel pump - same deal.

The number one problem with these cars is with clogged fuel filters. They must be changed regularly. When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire? That could be a fuel pressure problem due to a clogged filter.
