Question about 2006 BMW 3 Series
When I put my key in the ignition and press the start button, the car does not turn over. It's just silent. All the lights and radio are working and jumping did nothing. Do you have any suggestions?
Hi, did you mean when you said you jumped it that you pushed the car with ignition on and in gear but it still wont start.
if that is what you have done then the problem you are having is with the immobiliser now if your keys have a seperate fob for opening and closing the remote locking then the chances are this is where the fault lies, one thing you can try is when you put the key in the ignition try placing the fob as close as you can to the ignition just where you put the key in get it as close as you can then try starting the car, sometimes this will work and will get you out of trouble.
now if it dont start and you do have the fob type control then your going to need to take the fob to the main dealers with the owners documents and they will then re-program the fob for you, the chances are the battery is low and it just needs re-programming, this can only be done at the main dealers and they will charge for this but their is no other way of getting this done, if the car did start the way i told you then the chances are its just the battery in the fob that needs replacing getting this done should solve your problem.
Now if you car only has the key and not the one with the remote fob then the chances are the key will need re-programming as it will have a glass chip inside it like an RFID chip, now these do play up from time to time and sometimes the key will need replacing.
How ever the bad news is all these problems have to be taken care of at the main dealers as they dont authorize any where else to do thes jobs due to security reasons so the best thing for you to do is give the main dealers a call and ask them about the problem and explain the type of key you have, they will then give you the price and tell you where to take the key.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

1.check the charge in the battery because for starting the car you require full battery the other components can work with little charge itself.
try changing the battery or recharging the battery
