Question about 2005 BMW 3 Series

BMW X3 Doesn't Start

BMW X3 had days where it would start and days where it would take 2-3 times to start. Now it's dead. No dash lights, no lock/unlock, no nothing. Could it have been an electrical issue all along? Any answers?

Might be as simply as a new battery. Remove battery from vehicle and bring it to a repair shop or Sears Auto Center (they are the battery, and charging system Kings) and have them load test the battery. If battery fails purchase a new battery . Once the vehicle is up and running take it back to them and have them test the charging system and determine whether the vehicle has battery drain .

    I can't recall the trunk opening options on this vehicle but you can try one of these:

    I don't believe the manual release buttom inside driver compartment is electric.

    If I'm wrong the rear seats should fold down I think I'm not sure there may be a release tag .

    If that doesn't work get into trunk via rear seats and carefully place a battery charger on the battery terminals . Doors should click off as soon as you put charger on.

My bmw 320i 05 model wont start (no sound) and there is no dead battery sign on the dash board


If your battery is dead enough, even the dead battery indicator won't light. Take the battery to an autoparts store for a bench test/charge first before trying anything else.

How do I change the time on my 2007 BMW x3


The clock on the radio and on the dash are synchronized. There is an oil check button located between the odometer and speedometer. Press and hold the right button ( oil check ) for a few seconds. You will see the time flashing. Press the left button to adjust the time. You will find the instructions in your owners manual.
