If it doesnot crank at all look for starter/starter relay/starter relay fuse. Most probably wiring coming to starter is loose, try to tighten it more (push towards starter). Also I would check antiteft system (if it is provided for your car) as some BMW have immobilizers.
If it cranks no start look for spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, coolant temperature sensor, O2 sensor, fueling system (fuel pump cutoof switch, fule pump relay, fuel filter).
Please kindly let me know if you need more information, or kindly provide me with more details to assist you better
Good Luck

My 2006 bmw 325i doesnt start makes a click noiise when i hit the push start but no light on dash just the radio it complete doesnt start the battery got tested its fine


Certainly sounds like a lack of power in the battery.
Do you have a genuine BMW battery or a cheapie replacement?
Have you tried to jump start the vehicle.
Batteries can seem ok, but when called upon, the power drawn out of them can be insufficient.
Try charging battery and starting on the charger- or just jump start to see what happens

I have a 1996 BMW 318TI and when I turn ignition, the engine dosen't turn, but when i put a remote starter the engine turns, but no spark fire from spark. I need a solution to fix this quick!


Does the key have a alarm on it if it does youll need to replace the battery in the key.When the key is put in the transponder sends a signal to give spark and it does.then it starts. If you say the key doesnt have a alarm try this when the key is turn to the ACC position do you hear the pump. now if you crank it with the remote does the pump turn on? If yes you can do this go to the crank sensor pull on the harness(crank sensor has a tendency to get loose) does the crank move if it does youll need to tighten it up with the proper gap. if it doest solve it do this. close the door with the battery at a proper charge put the key in the door unlock it get in put the key in ignition now does it crank. If no you have a alarm problem.

I have bmw 316i n reg went out to start it and there was nothing it would bump start so i changed starter motor and next day was fine then day after it done it again does anyone know what it could be...


there may be a damaged wire coming from the receiver ring which sits round your ignition lock, this "reads" your key and allows the starter to turn your engine over so if there is an intermittant fault here that could cause your non-starting.

I can not start my BMW 2000 323i with the key. The engine will not even attempt to turn over. Everything else works fine. One key failed on Sunday and began using a different key and that worked until...


Check the battery cables a loose connection can cause this. It they are tight check ignition switch.
With 2 key failures in such a short time it may be security ignition interrupt issue

HAVE YOU HAD THE BATTERY TESTED? ARE THE BATTERY TERMINALS/CABLES CLEAN AND FREE OF CORROSION? ARE THEY TIGHT?

Ignition


Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.
