Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
I am not able to start my 2001 525i - The car would crank but probably not enough juice in the battery to start the car. Is this a sign of a dead battery or the ignition system?
Also, I was not able to locate the battery. Can someone help so I can try to jump start it.
Assuming that the battery is indeed in the vehicle, causes could be many, slipping fan belt, battery connections oxidizing or loose. precautions may have to be taken if the car has a computer management system when jump starting.some cars have to be jump started by connecting the - (black) lead to the chassis if its a - earth system. If you have a manual read it first get a friend to help you with it.
