Bmw have horrible proprietary batteries. hopefully yours does not. check the battery posts and cable clamps, make sure there is no corrosion on them. i have had this exact same problem. also when you are putting them back on, make sure that they are tight. a good way to gauge how tight to put them is you should NOT be able to turn the connector on the battery post

Battery is dead and wont start


Make sure the battery is fully charged before trying again. If the battery wont charge get a new one. Once installed use a multimeter to verify that the alternator is charging.

EVERYTIME 2004 TAHOE GETS LOW ON FUEL (NOT EMPTY, BUT AROUND 30 MILES LEFT...BEFORE ANY INDICATOR LIGHT COMES ON) IT WONT START AGAIN. IT WILL SIT OVER NIGHT AND WE WONT BE ABLE TO START IT....


Sounds like you have either a bad fuel pump or a leak in the line somewhere. With a leak in the line it will take a long time for the gas to get up toward the engine. When it sits over night the gas line empties back into the tank and the process starts all over again

2004 ford explorer won't start checked all the fuses are good everything comes on as usaual tried for 30 mins to jump it and it did no good


Your battery could have a few dead cell, with jumper cable hook up, try to start engine, if all light go dim to off, replace battery, will not take a charge, replacing battery will take care of your problem.

The theft system wont let me turn on my car it only cranks but wont stay on


You could try resetting the computer. The car maybe in lockout mode. Try turning your car over….leave the ignition on. Wait exactly 10 min. Then try turning over again….again leave the key on. Wait exactly 10 min and do it a third time….this time the car should start…maybe run a lil rough while it relearns the processes of your vehicle again. It is important to wait the exact 10 min each time. You will probably need a battery charger or a set of jumper cables because if your car goes low during this process it will not work. Good luck and I hope this works.

The engine management light stays on and the abs light stays i have tried everything and they wont turn of my car is a daewoo kalos 2004 make


take the car to a sevice center and have them check for trouble codes which might make the light stay on and tell you what problems the car is having. or disconnect the battery cables and wait 20-30 min then reconnect the cables and see if that clears the codes. usually if a light stays on that means you have problems.

try this
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
