SOURCE: 2002 bmw x5 4.6 wont start

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.

SOURCE: my 1995 bmw 5 series wont start! it acknowledges

Had the same problem, My issue had to do with the door locks? I guess the door locks are tied into the ignition for security purpose. I had to get out and close the door put the key in the drivers door, lock it and than unlock it (make sure all the door lock knobs go down and up) than it started right up.
Strange I know but it has to do with some type of security issue?

Bmw m3 2003wont start

For about the last 20 years or so, most cars are equipped not to start if you press on the gas while turning the key. This is used for diagnostic purposes. DO NOT press on the gas peddle while attempting to start a fuel injected car.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
