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

SOURCE: I just go locked out of my X5 BMW 2002 x5 and my

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- jimanddiane@live.co.uk

Bmw x5 2003 , rear brake lights always on ( not the center one) , horn does not work , radio does not work . this all started with I had to jump start my car


Never jump start with another vehicle. always use a jump box. If that battery is more than 3 years old replace it. A bad battery will damage the alternator (full field condition). Check all the fuses. Un plug the brake light switch to see if brake lights go out. If they go out replace the switch, make sure the switch is adjusted correctly . It is located under the dash at the brake pedal arm, the plug will have 2 wires in the plug.

Isuzu trooper 2002 it started shut down started then it shut off .Now i try to start it and nothing no buzz no clicking nothing,the battery is fully charged. i just bought it. can some one please help


Try disconnecting a battery cable. Reconnect 5 min later. This resets the ECM. These vehicles are a real continuing problem when they get old. I had a 1990 Trooper II and finally junked it last year.

Batteries have a service life of 2-5 years. It seems like your battery is in need of replacement. Have it tested, or if it is more than 3 years old, just get a new one.

I have 2002 BMW x5. The battery light came on, then the brake light, ABS and warning lights all came on at the same time. Car started to stall once I got to 30 mph. Parked the car and restarted...all...


Replace the battery. (And possibly the Alternator). Reset any codes and try again. A week battery will cause al kinds of havoc and will result in just what you describe. BMW's are very sensitive to correct voltage.

My 2002 hyundai matrix hard starting


Slow to turn over engine or failure to start quickly ?

Check battery ,if over 5 years old replace

Check fuel pressure with a gauge on motor
May work but not hold pressure when off,thus
slow to start

Can't have spark plugs in motor over 3 years,
nothing to do with miles on then.

The battery died because it is cold outside. Does it have a plug in where I could plug it in when it gets cold?


if your battery is failing do to the cold -- it might be time for a new battery. look and see if there is any info in the cars paperwork or on the battery that tells how old the battery is. most car batteries only are good for 5 years max. as far as a plug in goes -- some cars and trucks have block heaters installed that keep the block and oil warm in cold climates which makes starting easier,, I live in Alaska and almost every vehicle has this because we see negative degrees for 5 to 6 months a year.
have your battery tested at a battery shop ( load tested ) and make sure the fluid levels in the battery are at the proper level.

THE DEALERSHIP OR AUTO PARTS STORES CAN FIND WHAT BATTERY YOU NEED.JUST TELL THEM MODEL YEAR TYPE OF VECHICLE.ENGINE SIZE AND TYPE OF FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM.HAVE ALTERNATOR CHECKED OUT WHEN YOU BUY ANOTHER BATTERY BECAUSE BATTERY JUST 3 YEARS OLD.THEY CAN LAST 5 YEARS.IF BATTERY FAILS TOO SOON IT COULD BE DEFECTED BUT HAVE ALTERNATOR CHECK.WITH ENGINE RUNNING ALTERNATOR OUT PUT SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS.
