Try jumping the X5 with another car. if it starts, then the battery is too weak start the SAV. if it doesn't start while jumping, try moving the transmission lever forward and aft, then back to park and give it a try. if no joy, see if it will start in neutral. i don't believe the brake has to be applied; mine doesn't.

when all else fails, try this site: www.x5world.com , go to forums and either use the search function at the bottom of the page. if search produces no results, then join and ask them. a wealth of info on this site.

Car wont start, but all lights work....Theres no turn over sounds at all, car simply wont even budge, but all signs of a bad battery are no there, all electrical things work.


SOUND LIKE FAULTY STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER MAKE SURE BATTERY CABLES AND BATTERY POST TIGHT CLEAN TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES. TO KEEP FROM LOSING CODE. USE A MEMORY SAVER IN CIGARETTE LIGHTER BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLE.BMW WARNING YOU BECAUSE YOU SHUT DOWN PCM VECHICLE HAS TO BE TOWED IN AND REPROGRAMED .IF ALL IS GOOD YOU COULD HAVE PROBLEM IN ELECTRONIC IMMOBILIZER CONTROL OR FAULT IN THE TRANSMISSION CONTROL UNIT.

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.

My 2002 GMC Envoy wont start. I have had it on the battery charger for almost an hour. When I turn the key I get interior lights and headlights and the dash board lights up to. But nothing from the...


try car to car boost-battery charger may not be working correctly or set on low amp charge -interior lights and dash may all light but battery may not be strong enough to energize starter have battery tested if battery good than check for power to the starter if power-- starter may be shot can remove also and have tested at most auto stores free if no power battery -wiring-or connection issue would need to test fuse panel-ignition switch and starter solenoid

No crank


shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off.
try with key turned to ignition position.
suspect starter solenoid on starter motor.
suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown.
suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.

Sounds like a starter motor problem. Possibly a sticky solenoid. Try rocking the car or giving the starter and solenoid a hard bang with a hammer.
