My car wont start

Can you describe a bit more about what you tried? Have you checked the strength of the battery? Even if the battery powers most of the accessories it may not have enough power to crank the engine. Will it start if you try to jump it?

I have a 1997 BMW 328i. It will not start wont even make a noise when turning key. Tried jump but didn't work. Hit the starter with a hammer. Changed battery. Lights work radios works just won't start...

try removing the spark plugs to ensure that you do not have a hydraulic lock in a combustion chamber. This happens when a crack or faulty head gasket allows water into the chamber and when the piston comes up it is prevented from going over the top of the stroke. Removing the plugs allows the water to come out and the engine to spin.

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

2003 BMW 330ci - battery is good buy starter wont engage even though lights and eltronics are fine.

Just because the light come on and the electronics work doesn't mean the battery has enough of a charge. Some systems won't engage the starter unless it has over 9.6 volts. Try charging or jump starting and see if it makes a difference. If you can find the started make sure the wires aren't loose and you can try and tap on the stater while someone else is trying to start it. First thing I would try is to see if it will start in neutral. Sometimes when you put it into park the safety switch doesn't get fully depressed

Can't start car even if i try the jumper cable.........

If you have a multimeter, connect it to your battery, and select an appropriate DC voltage range. On my multimeter, I use the 20volt setting.

If your battery shows 12-13.8 volts, then it is not the issue. If your battery voltage is low, then you will probably need a new battery. A flat battery can also indicate that the alternator is not recharging your battery properly, but it could also just mean that your battery is old and needs replacing.

If your engine wont turn over, and if your battery is good, it could be a faulty starter motor.

Those jump start packs need to be charged often, or the battery inside them can stop working. It is possible that your jump starter pack is also broken.

Try jump starting the car from another vehicle, with jumper leads. If you know your battery is dead, you could also just replace it with another one.

2002 bmw x5 4.6 wont start, it has power to the starter all the lights are on but when you turn the key,it will not even turn over not even a crank,it does nothing any ideas?

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: , 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.
