SOURCE: bmw 740 il key broke in half at remote part car

Yes it is, but just having the key near the ignition is enough to start the car. If you can turn the ignition with the broken key, hold the broken part in your hand and see if it will start. Hopefully the chip isn't damaged. I know that when GM keys are replaced, they glue the old key under the dash to make it work. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: bmw 5 series wont start

Hi, first off, an alternator would never cause clicking. It would wear the battery down pretty fast if it is bad which would cause the click if it was the battery. If the car clicks once, then that is usually the sign of a stuck solenoid. However, if what you are describing is multiple clicks, then that means the battery is not sending enough juice to the solenoid to start the car. The three things that usually is: Low/dead battery. Autozone can check and charge that for free. Takes about an hour. Next, loose battery cables or just dirty terminals where they attach. You can clean them with baking soda but if they look good and are securely tightened, then my guess would be that the cables aren't the problem. Lastly, your solenoid may be going bad on the starter.

What I would do: Test and charge battery fully, clean the terminals if necessary and then secure the cables tightly. After doing that, it should work. If not, then move on to your starter. AutoZone once again can test that for free as well as your alternator if your battery keeps dying pretty fast.

Why wont my ignition key go into the ignition of my bmw x5 the remote locking works fine but the key will not go into the ignition its as if there is something blocking the key

Hi Keith

Sometimes the stearing lock comes on and sticks, try getting hold of the steering wheel and pull down to the left a bit at a time and at the same time try to put key in, or you can wobble the wheel as you are trying to put key in this also sometimes works...hope that helps

Can't get bmw to start after replacing thermostat

Double check around your thermostat. Make sure you did not disconnect any wiring. Even if you put the thermostat in upside down the car will still start. it will get hot but it'll still start. You had to hit a wire somewhere and disconnected it.

My BMW 325i's steering wheel is locked and the car wont start.

Your steering column most likely is defective and you should be able to get this fixed under warranty. BMW discontinued this part in 2007. Its might go off if you put the key in the ignition and wait 5-10 minutes, but only maybe.

My 1995 bmw 5 series wont start! it acknowledges the key in the ignition, but when your turn the key nothing happens. it makes no attempt to start engine whatsoever.

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?

     First you need to make sure battery terminals are tight and your battery is good.  Next what is the story did this just happen one day or did you overheat the car.  If the car was not overheated then check the aboved mentioned because low crankig amps will cause the dash lights to flicker.  especially when it is colder outside batteries fail more.  But i need more info
