When you say you have power, do you mean the dash lights come on?
The power requirements of the starter motor are a lot higher than that of the dash lights or even the headlights and accessories.

Turn the headlights on and try to start the engine, if the headlights go really dim or right out then your battery doesn't have the capacity that the starter needs to turn the engine over and you need to replace it.

2003 525I BMW and my battery went dead so I jumped it now my heater fan wont turn off even with my engine off and keys out


sounds like youve welded a relay shut with jumpstarting it with the heater on... check your relays - pull them out one at a time till the fan stops, you have found the relay for your heater= you can give it a knock on the ground and plug it back in to see if it frees the switch inside otherwise replace it - very cheap - stocked at bmw and good auto shops

My 1994 325i wont start if the power locks arent working and only the drivers door opens is this a safety feature that it wont start if the doors dont unlock


Check the battery as the power locks stop working if your battery is dead, which will also stop you from starting the car.
