    i actually have the same exact problem but the wierd thing about it is my fuel pump went and so i changed the pump and the fuel filter also and when i went to start it up for the first time the battery light was on and it ran like it was running off three cylinders but they were all firing because i checked so the only other thing i could think of was an alternater so i just got that put in and the problem stays the same so if anyone has a clue please help!!!

Well this could be any part of your charging system first start cheap check wires for breaks or frays. Since you have replaced the battery next check the alternator. If that doesn't do it let me know I'll research this a little more.

You need to have the fault codes read with a OBD2 code reader or scanner, that is how you find out what system in the computer controlled engine is acting up.

Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

Check engine light stays on.


You've made the correct decision. Let the dealership diagnose the issue. They'll tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).
