Question about 1996 BMW 318
Can anyone help me and my baby? My BMW 318i 1988 does not start. I drove it for 2 hours and then parked. Within 10 minutes I attempted to start it. I heard it crank then all systems shut down and an electronic whirring sound came from the engine. I tried to start it several times, but the sound still kept coming from the engine. To stop the noise, I had to remove battery cables. I waited a few minutes and tried reconnecting the battery cable. The positive cable sparked and smoked a little (as if a short circuit occurred.) As soon as I I reconnected the battery cables, the same electronic whirring sound came from the engine. I also checked the fuses in the fuse box, but they all appear okay. I think it may be a blocked or blown starter. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you very much and God Bless.
