SOURCE: 1999 bmw 540i automatically shuts off

It sound dumb, but check if both battery posts are OK. Pull on both of them one after the other to make sure they wont budge at all. Cause i had this problem once where the negative post had broken, but inside the battery where the post and the plates that make up the battery's cells become one. But since the post was still sitting in the battery, it touched just enough to give the car juice to start and all, but when i hit a big enough bump, the post jumped up so the car had no more ground, and with no ground to work with, the spark plugs can't make any fire so the engine dies apparently for no reason. So even if it sound weird or dumb, check that out first cause it would be the thing that makes you search the longest. If everything regarding the battery is fine, then i'm guessing a problem with a body ground or grounding strap somewhere. Might either be the grounds regarding the engine that give it the possibility to fire and such, or might be the grounds and/or fuses and connectors that make the car's onboard computer work.

SOURCE: how to find the starter

44f4228.jpg This is what your starter will look like. It's usually on the passanger side engine. Follow your red battery cable to the relay, then follow it from there until it reaches the starter. Make sure you remove the red cable from your battery before working on it.

My car is a bmw 540i 1995 and I like it very much! I was told that the one and six is missing! How do I find out which one is the six and one?

First thing i would do is to take the battery clamps off and clean them and then clean the battery post themselfs. If that dont work then i would look for a bad ground to the motor.

Have the dealer keep the car and run a scan test on the security system while this alarm issue is occurring, then they can pinpoint the cause of the false activation of the system. That problem will likely be one of the door latch sensors is failing.
