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.

SOURCE: 2001 BMW 325 how do i charge the battery

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.

SOURCE: Can a weak battery cause a BMW to misfire?

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! a large voltage drop would rob your ignition of voltage causing your miss!.good luck, marty

There is no power going to it what should i check

Check the battery. If the battery is good, check the fuses. If the fuses are good, there might be a problem with the ignition. But, let's go back to the battery. Besides checking it for a charge, you want to make certain that the terminals (battery posts) are clean and the battery cabling is not damaged. And if you charge the battery or jump it, be certain you have the cabling attached to the proper post and a ground. If you put the cable on the wrong post, get ready to buy a new battery and maybe a trip to get your electrical system fixed. It is a major cause of grief.

If the car cranks after charging the battery, there is still a question whether the alternator is working or not. If it is not, the battery will be depleted after driving. Of course, if you have a battery that will not hold a charge, it also will become depleted in short notice. But you can test a battery after putting it on a charger without even hooking it up to the car. The tester will probably show very quickly that the battery is not holding a charge, regardless how long you leave it on a charger.

Car battery charging

If you already have a charger set it on a 2-4 amp charge then put the red cable from the charger to the post on the battery that has the red cable and the black to black then plug the charger in and let it charge for 6-8 hours.

Car wont stay running after battery change

Was the car acting the same way before the battery change? Turn on the lights to see if the battery is charged--they should run for ten minutes or so without dimming. If not, charge the battery with an external charger--several hours with a high current charger, overnight with a low current charger. If charging the battery fixes the problem, then measure the battery voltage at the posts with the engine running--you should read 13.5 volts or a little more. If you read 12.6 volts or less, the alternator is likely in trouble. Take the car to AutoZone or similar business for a free check of the charging system. Hope this helps, but if doesn't, check back with us and include any additional symptoms noted plus what you have done to rectify things.

When i turn the key i hear a clicking sound but motor wont start

If you are hearing only clicking, it is probably because your battery is not charged enough to turn the starter over. I would check the terminals on the battery first. If they are pretty dirty and corroded take them off and clean both the post and the cable and make sure they are tight. If they are clean, then put a battery charger on the battery and see if it's better in the morning.

Easiest thing might be would be taking the battery out of the car and taking it to a auto parts store like NAPA, Autozone, O'Reilly etc and they can load test the batter to see if it is able to take a charge. They can tell you in up to 5 minutes if the batter is your culprit.

Car starts with jump and drives but wont start by itself

well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)

Car will not jump start

Check battery voltage. If volts are very low, put on charger. In many cases, you can't jump through a really dead battery... not enough voltage gets through to computer etc to make systems operate.
Battery may be used up... if it will not take a charge, replace it and check charging system before driving. PS: use a charger to charge battery. If it is very low, you candamage charging system in other vehicle. Also,,, You cleaned terminals already RIGHT???

Charge battery

Do you have a battery charger? If you do, connect the red(positive) clamp on the charger (+) to the Positive (+) battery post. Then connect the black(negative) clamp on the charger (--) to the (--)(negative) battery post. Make sure these are hooked up this way, if they aren't, you can damage the car's charging system (big bucks to fix). When you are sure the charger is connected to the battery properly, plug the charger in. It would be best to let it charge overnight. You must then find out why the battery went dead, otherwise, when you go out someplace and turn the car off, you may not be able to start it up again. If it's the original battery it's time to get a new one. You can drive to a major parts store, they will check the battery and car's charging system to see what's wrong for free.Good Luck countrycurt0
