My BMW 7series 7351 2004 wont start,it just cranks. started when I removed the battery and put it back. it gives me fault code 2737 anti tampering protection

That fault will cause a no start, it senses an unauthorized person is trying to start eh car. You need a shop to scan the system control module and see what is causing the fault.

They are all different but many systems will work if you leave key turned to on for 5 to15 minutes or so (need good battery) and then click right to start. Bigger issue may be chip key or ignition "reader" in vehicle may have lost contact due to age.

I parked my 2001 Taurus sel it ran when I parked

It is possible that the car's alarm/immobilizer system is preventing the vehicle from starting. Manufacturers, in an effort to prevent car theft, have the immobilizer activate if the battery circuit is interrupted for more than a certain number of minutes. This keeps car thieves from cutting battery cables to prevent alarm activation. If the battery goes flat-line dead, the same thing can occur. You need a special tool available at a dealer or repair facility to reset the immobilizer.

The computer says the immobilizer coil is open/short

Did you reset the computer. Usually disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes should do it. If this does not fix it, you need to recheck your work. Something you did has caused the message. Did you short circut a wire, burn a fuse, forget to reconnect something? The immobilizer probably works by immobilization of the vehicle's coil circut. Thus, causing the computer message to display about the coil issue. Try reset computer of vehicle should work.

I have a 2004 BMW Z4 and a light was left on and the battery died. I replaced the battery and when I turn the ignition all of the ligkts inside and out work. The locks work with the key remote and the top...

You should have just purchased a battery charger and then you wouldn't have disconnected the battery and un-paired the alarm system and immobilizer. There would have been enough residual energy in a flat battery to keep the immobilizer happy.

Disconnect the battery completely for at least 2 hours. Hold the positive and negative terminals together for 5 minutes. Put the key in the ignition and connect the negative lead of the battery. Connect the positive in one swift movement. Leave the vehicle for 5 minutes to reset and re-pair the chip in the key and the chip in the ignition lock.

It would have worked if the key was in the ignition when you connected the new battery.

Have bmw 523 auto will not start,turns over,have charged battery,do i need to reset immobiliser?help,this car cannot be towed i am told because its an auto?

You shouldn't have to reset immobilizer. And your car CAN be towed, if done correctly. It can be towed from the rear. The preferable way is aboard a flat bed.
