Question about 1998 BMW Z3 Roadster

1 Answer

I have a 2000 BMW Z3 and today when I went to start it I inadvertently let the key back off from the 'start' position before the engine had started...right after that, and still now, it only clicks and will not start. The owners manual talks about not running the starter too briefly but offers no advice if you do.....help??

With the engine off put it in any gear and rock the car back and forward this should hopefully disengage the starter

I have a 2000 BMW Z3 that has sat for about a year. I started it periodically and it always started right up. I went to start it one time and the battery was dead. I charged the battery and tried again....


Hi,
I think that if the battery went completely flat the vehicle may have lost the security code, or the same can have happened if you did not follow the boost charge instructions when starting. If that has happened you'll need to have the unit re-encoded by a dealer. Keep in mind that starting a vehicle periodically is good but if you don't run it as well the battery will become exhausted and finally fail. The start up of any engine drains more power from the battery than any other operation. You need to start it and give it a run.

I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

Bmw z3 alarm system problem


The alarm system is located behind your glovebox. The sensitivity portion should be mounted on the rear portion of your glovebox, while the electronic portion plugs in directly behind that. Unplug and play.
