Wont start 2003 bmw 330xi


Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Also check the battery in you key as the immobiliser may not be reading it.

Trying to jump start a 2006 750 Li BMW. Lights turned on after 40mins but car still won't start. Dashboard help screen says engine malfunction due to reduced power.


the ground wire needs to go to a better ground then the strut bolt. find a better thick piece of steel on the engine to ground. those cables look very thin. It should start right away not after 40min. your boosting not charging the battery. if you cant get it started with a better ground location try a thicker set of cables and make sure the other car is running. if this fails your battery needs to be replaced

How to jump a BMW 320


All vehicles with a 12 Volt Positive system are jump started in the same manner.

If done properly, you should always connect the +Pos side on the battery in the vehicle that should be running, then connect that same cable to the +Pos side on the low battery. Then, you connect the
-Neg side on the running vehicle, and now connect the other -Neg end to a solid ground on the vehicle with the low battery. You really want a good connection for this on a solid part of the engine/trans., since when you attempt to start the car, it will be drawing 400-700 Amps.
(Alternator bracket, exhaust manifold, a sling point, etc. wil do.)

Some people hook to the -Neg side of the low battery, but that can cause sparks as well as an explosion if hydrocarbons are coming out of the low battery.

A completely fried battery can cause the vehicle providing the jump start to stall and can even damage components if not connected properly.

Good luck!

1994 BMW 740i with 222,000 turns over but won't start. Removed battery, had it tested and it's good; radio, lights, windows all working fine. Driving the car on Friday, went to start it on...


Hi.

If it does turn over and electrical works, then the problem is unlikely the battery. You can try jump starting. If it cranks when jump-starting it may be a weak battery, starter motor or alternator, but I don't think that this is the problem.

Check if there is spark on all cylinders. Do a code scanning (this car is OBD1, you will need to do the scan at the dealer place or to find a BMW OBD1 tool- Universal OBD2 scanner will not work on a 1994 BMW). If the codes return misfire or mixture related errors check fuel pressure, check sensors and parts that determine the mixture (MAF/MAP, AIT, O2 sensors, IAC and EGR system), check the vacuum system for leaks and check the crank sensor.

Regards.

Where is the battery situated on a bmw 525i 1995?


The location of the battery in the BMW 525i series is under the back seat on the passengers side. To access the battery, grab under the front portion of the back seat and pull upward with some force. There are two slips into which the seat is secured. One on the passenger side and one on the drivers side, again in the front of the back seat. There is not one in the center.

Changing time on BMW 320 D SE Touer


Procedures for changing the clock vary from model to model. Usually there is some button on the trip computer that you hold down until the display blinks.
Why not just look in the owners manual?

Fuel filter and oil filter location on Bmw 320 td copact


If you removed the camshaft cover, you should probably replace the gasket or at a minimum insure that all bolts are torqued to OEM specification.

Look here for instructions and pictures for the oil change.

The fuel filter is located on the bottom of the car, not sure which side, under a shield. Look here for pics and instructions.

Hope this helps!
