Check the battery cables a loose connection can cause this. It they are tight check ignition switch.
With 2 key failures in such a short time it may be security ignition interrupt issue

Engine wont turn over even though all dash lights work when key on.


This is the classic symptom of a bad battery. Your engine requires a lot of power to crank but the little lights in your dash require very little. if the battery is even a little drained it won't crank the engine, but everything else will seem to work fine. Either jumpstart the car (if it starts, then you likely need a new battery) or test the voltage at the battery terminal when trying to start the car. If the voltage drops below 12 volts you need a new battery (or at least a freshly charged one)

I bought an acura legend 92 ls and for some reason it has a little trouble starting


it could be a fuel pressure problem, or the none return valve is not working. (regulator) could even be a blocked filter in the fuel line. worst case its the pump.

Fitted new battery to 523i 1999 bmw car did not start ,after 2 days of push starting car started on key now car will nut start


firstly check that your battery has a charge using a voltmeter, it needs to have 12v
if no charge, you will need to charge the battery.
if it has a charge, and the battery terminal connections are good, you will be looking for the the engine to turn(attempt to start)
if it turns and stasts, fine.
if the engine does not turn, you will need to look at the startermotor connections. (power supply to the starter motor via the ignition switch turns the engine)
hope this helps

My 84 bmw 733i will start and run but engine dies as soon as i let go of the key


I had this exact symptom on my 1984 533i. I spent months diagnosing everything but the computer. It was the computer that failed. Actually only part of the circuitry failed and is probably repairable. When the car is cranking it would run. I set up a wire harness that allowed me to shut off the starter motor while I was holding the key in the starter motor position. The car ran just fine. The 533, 633 and 733 all use the computer ending with 008. DO NOT slap in any other computer unless you actually know what you are doing. I tried. And you risk damaging good components, like the donor computer and the injectors.

I have bmw 316i n reg went out to start it and there was nothing it would bump start so i changed starter motor and next day was fine then day after it done it again does anyone know what it could be...


there may be a damaged wire coming from the receiver ring which sits round your ignition lock, this "reads" your key and allows the starter to turn your engine over so if there is an intermittant fault here that could cause your non-starting.

Cannot start


have someone turn the key to start it... and smack the starter with a hammer... if it starts it's the starter needing replacement
