Question about 2005 BMW X5
2002 model and battery is 5 years old.
Think what your asking
You have the car & we are on the internet !!!
If the battery is 5 years old-- it may have failed
You could test it & then if necessary replace
The alternator has nothing to do with starting & that
also can be checked for voltage & current output,
but not from where we are here at our homes,need
the car to test it

theres an anti-theft system. take positive terminal off battery, have someone holding the key on like trying to start it, then put the terminal back on and that should start it right up (had same problem in my dodge ram) if not, check all you're connections

right i had this ***** of a problem 2nd week in jan 2010. a bmw mechanic told to jack car up at front and hook a jumper pack up to live on starter motor terminal and then earth, was quite hard to put croc clip on to starter but did manage it. this was supposed to back charge to battery to get enough power to open car with remote, in theory it should of worked but i gave up after 3 hours-no power. so i got my key put it in drivers door and mechanically turned to open position, then i got a cutlery knife from kitchen and wrapped some insulation tape around tip up 2-3 inches. then i pushed this down glass directly above door handle key end to pry a gap between glass and rubber just enough to slide coat hanger wire in with small hook on end then i manouvered wire hook until i hooked latch arm which i did within 1 minute pulled coathanger wire up and pulled door handle the door opened much to my delight. this was a major sigh of relief after trying for 2 days to get in, and many hours searching the net for a solution which i couldnt find. THIS WORKS 100 percent WITH ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE!!!!!!! any questions email me- email@example.com
