Question about 1998 BMW 7 Series

1 Answer

I went to start my car and it would not crank. Battery and all connections are fine, inside lights and dash are also functioning properly. Tried to jump it and still no luck. I'm thinking it may be a fuse or the starter, but I'm having a hard time locating it to check its condition

First, and cheapest, solution is to locate the starter relay and change that. The part should be available for less than $15. If it's sticking, no power will get to the starter and you won't be able to start the car. Also, check your fuse boxes for anything to do with the starter or fuel injection, and make sure the fuses aren't blown.

It could still be the security system. The resistors only bypass the key and ignition. If your Theft Deterrent Module is bad, the security light may not turn on, and the car will not start. You can bypass this.

Battery died, changed battery and now engine wont crank.


Look for a blown starter fuse or fusible link in your underhood block. Also look for what made it blow.

Do head lights stay on (bright) while trying to crank starter? If not, starter motor isn't getting enough current, OR engine is locked. Is there current getting through the solenoid to starter motor? Check the ground connection between the engine and chassis as well as battery and chassis.

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger. Went out yesterday, car started fine. Got home and stooped at my mailbox, when I went to start the car it wouldn't start. I did notice the lights on the dash would go dim...


I'd start with a battery first. Sounds like the battery has 1 or more dead cells in it. the battery may have all the volts you could want but if it doesn't have the proper amperage it won't crank the motor. You can have the battery load tested for free at Auto Zone or Advance Auto. A simple down and dirty test would be to disconnect the Positive cable and jump the vehicle by connecting directly to that and a good ground on the block. The motor should turn over as long as the vehicle you use as a jump has the proper amperage in it's battery. If the vehicle starts then it is the battery, if it doesn't then you need to look at the starter and other components.

Won't start


very well could be due to anti theft issue. i don't recall the keys getting locked in the ignition from this though. try turning the key to the on postion- not cranking and leave it there for 15 min, then turn back off. do this three times. you may get a blinking light on the dash- don't worry about it. on the fourth try and start it. what you are doing is telling the alarm- i have the proper keys so let me take my car!

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck
