SOURCE: 2002 bmw x5 4.6 wont start
try jumping the X5 with another car. if it starts, then the battery is too weak start the SAV. if it doesn't start while jumping, try moving the transmission lever forward and aft, then back to park and give it a try. if no joy, see if it will start in neutral. i don't believe the brake has to be applied; mine doesn't.
when all else fails, try this site: www.x5world.com , go to forums and either use the search function at the bottom of the page. if search produces no results, then join and ask them. a wealth of info on this site.

Onb German cars, brown wires are grounds. You are right, you need a wiring schematic to see where that wire is supposed to go.
Suscribe to alldata .com, for about 12 bucks or so you can get your car enroled for the year and it will include wiring diagrams.
What does not work in the car? This might give you a clue to what that ground wire is about. Note that if a componenet is looking for a ground, you will have battery voltage in that wire.
Loook nharder for where that spade connector goes also

If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
