Question about 1997 BMW 318
Do the head lights turn on? AAre they bright? If not, get the battery charged.
If they are bright, leave them on and try to start the car while somone watches the headlights. Do they dim a lot or go out? If so,clean the connections on the battery terminals. If they do not go out, you most likly have a starter problem. If this is the case, get a wooden shovel handle and give the starter a whack. You may get the brushes to seat one more time and get the car started so you can get it to the shop[.
