Spark,fuel and compression are the 3 needed things.
If your friend can feel a flow of exaust at the tailpipe ,
we will assume it has compression.Pull a plug wire ,at the plug
A spare plug would be best here ,but . Even a screwdriver in
the wire and find a spot to lay it on the engine so there is like 1/4
of an inch from a good ground ,crank it and watch for spark,
if it's there ,chances are you are looking at a fuel pump.

SOURCE: 1996 bmw 328i wont start

Possibly. 1st have the battery checked though. Pull it out and have a parts store check it (free service). All the lights may work, but the battery may not have enough 'juice' to crank the engine over. Is there a click, or no sound at all? Check terminals and connection at starter also to make sure all are clean and tight.
If battery checks out as fully charged and ok, then pull the starter and have it checked out. Good luck.

SOURCE: BMW 328i touring tailgate not opening

Have had this problem. Solve it by reading the owner's handbook, which gives clear instructions. Do not use the key in the tailgate door before reading the instructions.

What is the unlock code for a 1996 BMW 328i radio


If you cannot find the code written on something in the glove box, you will have to remove the radio. Once removed, you will need the serial number off of the radio chassis. You can call BMW with this number and they will give you the code.

Hope this helps!

BMW 328i 1996, steering wheel is lock and does not turn rigth or left.


If you can start vehicle it is in the column, Key switch is not engaging unlock. be sure to disconnect battery and remove fuse for airbag, if you don't you might be in for one hell of a scare or injury and uip to 750.00 to replace.
