Can a dead electronic key cause the car battery to drain. I have a 2001 BMW 525i and the elec. key has been dead for about 6 mos and recently the car battery has been draining. easy to jump and start...


Then, yes, I would say a remote starter key with a questionable battery could cause the battery to drain. Could be that all the necessary components are not being de-energized.

I would add that it's a long shot, but it's worth a try.

92 bmw 525i after replacing starter with a rebuilt the starter cranks when I connect the Battery up? Whats up. Bad ignition? wiring short?


Yes, you may have put the wires on the starter wrong. There is a positive post and an ignition post. If they touch or one is touching ground then the starter will engage.

I just bought a 1994 bmw 525i . Suddenly it wont turn over. acts like dead battery but I have power.


When you say you have power, do you mean the dash lights come on?
The power requirements of the starter motor are a lot higher than that of the dash lights or even the headlights and accessories.

Turn the headlights on and try to start the engine, if the headlights go really dim or right out then your battery doesn't have the capacity that the starter needs to turn the engine over and you need to replace it.

Where is the starter solenoid located on a 1994 bmw 525i


The starter solenoid is located on the starter. It looks like a miniature version of the starter which is attached to the starter. The starter relay, however, is located in your engine compartment on the passenger's side under the black box which also houses your cars main computer. This black box is located towards the back of the engine compartment (close to the windshield) on the passenger's side. There are 4 philips head screws which hold it in place.
