You might have killed your fuel pump. It's said that if you let the tank get too low or run the pump dry you can ruin it. I would see about getting a fuel pressure tester to check it.

Replace battery in key


If you have the diamond shape key, the battery is not replacable. If you have the square shaped key, the battery is replacable, but that is obvious because of the screws on the back of the remote.if you have the diamond shape key, it is recharged when its inserted into the ignition. If the key hasn't failed, taking a long trip 60 min. or longer should recharge the battery. If there is no change in the operation of the key after your long trip, most likely the key has failed and needs replacement.

My 2004 BMW 325 ci convertible is difficult to start.


If the fuel filter has been replaced, then maybe these are other reasons:

1. intake camshaft sensor (known to go bad on BMW E46s). ~$100 part.

2. fuel injectors (though I doubt they go bad that easily). ~$100/ piece. Your car has 6.

3. Ignition coils. ~$90 a piece. Your car has 6.

4. mass air flow sensor. Again, another expensive part. ~$300.

Engine wont idle unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal


First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.

325 ci conv


ok normally there are only a few screws or bolts that hold the door panel on sometimes they are located on the door handle on the inside somewhere or inside a small pop out panel on the door panel itself. Dont force anything because if you break any of the clips then you are in real trouble and have to either replace the clips or replace the door panel itself. just check and see if on the door handle has any screws or bolts. Most of the time there are just a few screws or bolts and a few clips. If there are clips try to pop them out really easy ok. If you have anymore questions just ask. I hope I helped
