Question about 2008 BMW 3 Series
Every morning when trying to start the engin the battery is flat. I had it checked with the altenator and both were okay. As soon as i get a jump start or another battery the vehicle starts. the rev counter then works, the feul cosumption gauge works and the wipers works. After driving a few blocks the feul consumption gauge stats to jump around, not long after that then it totaly stops working and so does the rev counter. After about an hour the wipers stops working or continue to run even after I ve stopped them.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

oNCE THE BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON, IT MEANS THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH UR CHARGING SYSTEM. mOST LIKELY THERE MIGHT BE A PROBLEM WITH UR ALTERNATOR. u SHOULD LIAISE WITH AN AUTO-ELECTRICIAN

If you have a multimeter, connect it to your battery, and select an appropriate DC voltage range. On my multimeter, I use the 20volt setting.
If your battery shows 12-13.8 volts, then it is not the issue. If your battery voltage is low, then you will probably need a new battery. A flat battery can also indicate that the alternator is not recharging your battery properly, but it could also just mean that your battery is old and needs replacing.
If your engine wont turn over, and if your battery is good, it could be a faulty starter motor.
Those jump start packs need to be charged often, or the battery inside them can stop working. It is possible that your jump starter pack is also broken.
Try jump starting the car from another vehicle, with jumper leads. If you know your battery is dead, you could also just replace it with another one.

Replace your battery when its being tested there not testing it under a heavy enough load. A battery could have a dead cell in it and still show good on the charger. I've had that problem a few times.

The battery could still be bad and if you don't have a totally good battery in the car it won't run right. Take to one of the parts stores and they can check it for you for free. Probably as simple as a battery.

Using the indicator stalk, navigate to the tyre pressure reset option, press the reset button twice in short succession but hold it in the second time until a tick appears on the display
