My car is a bmw 540i 1995 and I like it very much! I was told that the one and six is missing! How do I find out which one is the six and one?

First thing i would do is to take the battery clamps off and clean them and then clean the battery post themselfs. If that dont work then i would look for a bad ground to the motor.

1994 BMW 740i with 222,000 turns over but won't start. Removed battery, had it tested and it's good; radio, lights, windows all working fine. Driving the car on Friday, went to start it on...


If it does turn over and electrical works, then the problem is unlikely the battery. You can try jump starting. If it cranks when jump-starting it may be a weak battery, starter motor or alternator, but I don't think that this is the problem.

Check if there is spark on all cylinders. Do a code scanning (this car is OBD1, you will need to do the scan at the dealer place or to find a BMW OBD1 tool- Universal OBD2 scanner will not work on a 1994 BMW). If the codes return misfire or mixture related errors check fuel pressure, check sensors and parts that determine the mixture (MAF/MAP, AIT, O2 sensors, IAC and EGR system), check the vacuum system for leaks and check the crank sensor.

When i go to start my car, nothing happens. and my lights flicker when i turn them on. whats wrong with my car?

From what you have described the battery is practically flat and has insufficient charge to turn the starter motor.

If the battery is 3 or more years old it will be on its last legs and should be replaced because it will not be able to hold it's charge.

You have not said if you have tried jump starting your car using power from another vehicle. If your car can be jump started by hooking your car up to a battery (with sufficient cranking amps rating) on another vehicle then clearly your battery is the problem.

My 740i bmw will not start only click i get a jump off and drive it for hour or longer soon as i cut it off it does the same thing

One of two things could be the issue. I would drive it to an AutoZone or similar parts store. They will check the battery (under load, as any battery will normally show 12+ volts with a voltmeter) and should be able to determine if it is the battery or the voltage regulator. Unfortunately if it is the regulator you may have to get another battery as well. But since you can drive for an hour or so after a jump, I would say the battery is not holding charge correctly and needs to be changed. Hope this helps

Battary light on , engine cut off car won't crank

sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

98 bmw 740i wont start

I would first check the condition of the battery. If the battery is okay, that is it puts out enough current to operate the starter. I would then check for a short. The battery would be dead in a couple of hours only if there is a short or another load on the battery.
