Question about Cars & Trucks

I just got a 1995 bmw 381i. I left it park for 2 nights unused then went out this morning to use it but it wont come on. Its probably the battery but I don't know what to do next. Is there a quick simple solution?

Give the car a boost. Hook cables from one battery to another making sure the red , [pos] is on the red [pos] , and black [neg] is connected to black [neg] of other vehicle. Let car charge this way for a few minutes and restart. Sounds like a bad battery, won't hold the charge. Does the car turn over at all, or everything is dead? A tow company will offer boosts as so do most cab companies. Good luck

I can't quite follow your post, but it sounds like you set off the car alarm. Lock and unlock your doors with the key Fob to reset it.

I've replaced the battery several times in my 328 without such a problem.

SOURCE: 01 Escort ZX2 had bad 02 sensor parked and next morning wont fire

is there fuel at the fuel rail it may be your fuel pump but that is just a maybe

i can help you with your electrical draw problem though; with the batter charged remove the negative cable at the battery, place a test light between the battery and the negative cable if there is an electical draw the test light should be lit, then go to your fuse box and start removing fuse by fuse until the test light goes off then you know what is drawing electricity most of the times its a stuck door switch that no longer switches the dome lights off or small lights under the dash and stuff like that good luck

Alfa's have a Nylon ball with the gear selector (under the gearbox). They wear pretty easily. This could be pretty worn, either that or you're running low on gearbox, or "selespeed" oil. Check them out. They're pretty important and can cause serious problems to the gear box if not looked after.

SOURCE: 2001 expedition 5.4l. wont crank

get a multimeter and test battery output, if more than 13v when you turn key to crank position if below then battery may be faulty and not holding charge, check starter relay and fuse, if ok also check for any parasitic draw from any accesary that might draw down battery when engine not running

Testimonial: "I knew battery was good. truck doesnt crank. cannot check battery output if you cannot get starter to draw.but it did lead me to check starter relay."

2004 325xi BMW wont start - replace spark plugs and fuel pump


If u hear the engine cranking in the AM, the batt & alt sound good. If you don't get any engine cranking in the am you may have an electrical short draining the battery. Before u convict the starter u must make sure the battery has full power in the AM. (12V) & 12 V to the starter

I have a BMW 528i 1997. Last night, the battery light came on, followed by the traction control light, then the ABS, and finally the brake light. It went on for a few minutes then the dashboard started...


I had a BMW 540i 2000 and that happen to me, my advice is to get the battery out of the car and recharge it. It would be advisable to have it check for malfunctioning. If it is ok, put it back on and the car will start. If not good, put a new battery, the car will start and all the lights will work in order.

Probably you could loos your radio set up and clock set up if you took too much time in the replacement of the battery, don't worry, reset the clock and the radio stations.

Car wont start, drove it home last night and this morning it wont start. lately everytime i tried to start it it would click once and it would start the second time.


1- Battery may be weak, need to recharge.
2- At this car age, the solenoid has corroded contact causing high resistance reducing the current delivered to the starter. Therefore you could hear click coming from the solenoid, but not started.
3- Your solenoid costs about $41
