IF you have a computor control modual in the car (efi) hooking up the charger as you describe is a good way of burning out the unit. There are strict rules as to how to jump start ( charge) electronic controlled vehicles and if they are not followed the power surge the happens when the terminals are connected damage the computer.

If you look around the engine compartment you will see a sort of large silver nut on one of the inner wings. This is for the negative lead. Now if you search around a bit more you will find a sort of square black cover with an arrow type electrical sign. Lift the top off the cover and you will see a similar type nut. This is the positive. i.e. you do not need to access the battery tocharge or jump start the car.

SOURCE: my car randomly wont start.
I had a similar problem. It was driving me crazy. If car sat for more that 3-4 hours I would have a dead battery. It turns out that this apparently is a relatively common problem with BMWs. What was occurring is that the blower fan for the ac/heater was randomly turning on and off while the car sat. If the car sat for more than a couple of hours, the fan was draining the battery. It was about a $250 fix at the shop.

hello, if the vehicle ran with cable off one would ASUME alternator is ok! however, i bad diode in the aletnator would allow it to charge yet have a massive voltage draw as well, almost all of todays parts stores will do a free starting and charging test for you! ......ps a large voltage drop would rob your ignition of voltage causing your miss!.good luck, marty

SOURCE: On my 2006 M5 the
have you checked the alternator and or belts!! at the battery the voltage when running should be at least 14 to 14.2, then the alternator is working fine. when engine is off there should be at least 13.5 to 13.8, no less than 12 volts at battery. or battery is bad.
