SOURCE: the break light is on
540i bmw 2000
The brake light on the dashboard will come on if the brake fluid is low. This can be caused by
brake/shoe/pad/rotor wearing down i.e you need to do a brake job.

Just leave the ignition on for maybe 5 minutes.
Allow the fuel to get pumped back to the engine.
I'm assuming it's an auto.
Hold the throttle to the floor for about 20 seconds & then try turn it over. (Don't forget to take the foot off if it starts up!)
There's a good chance your fuel filter is clogged up with any dirt/debris that might have been in the end of your fuel tank.
I would suggest replacing the fuel filter in the mean-time even if it does start.
Fuel pumps are known to break if the fuel line runs dry, a bit like some water pumps I suppose. You should be able to hear this when the ignition is at position II (just before starting). If it's running this obviously isn't the problem.
Check the fuses if you can't hear the pump. (You never know).
Let me know how you get on!

SOURCE: how to find the starter
This is what your starter will look like. It's usually on the passanger side engine. Follow your red battery cable to the relay, then follow it from there until it reaches the starter. Make sure you remove the red cable from your battery before working on it.
