Turn on your headlights and try to start the car. If the headlights go from bright to dim or off , then the battery or it's connections are bad, or loose or corroded.
If the headlights stay bright, then the problem is likely the starter or it's connections.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: wont start

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

there will be some fusable links at the + of the battery they look like plane wire but have very soft insulation you will need a tester light or multimeter to chec if the power is going through them and have a look at the inside of the battery terms for yukky corosion one more thing check the cable giong to the body from the - term that it is connecting properly tp the body surface

SOURCE: Sensonic gearbox

Hi had same problem last Friday you can put a fuse in (30 amp) for gearbox and it will start when you turn key but you will not be able to select a gear I'm 100% sure it's the sensonic activator box you can pick one up for about £150-200 second hand.

SOURCE: starter relay clicks when you turn ignition key on

I would think bad starter. Remove it and have it tested to find out. It could also be the starter solenoid gone bad.

1996 Z3 won't start nor will the key lock/unlock the doors. Full charge on battery, when I turn the key it does nothing. Is this a Security cut off, and if so, how did this happen? Thanks

Sounds like a security lock out. You will probably end up at a dealer for more info on your specific cars system. You may want to try changing the battery in the remote.
