First of all try to Jump Start it first to see if it will start, and than if you have strange codes after that we can try to diagnose it.

Car won't turn over


Should be a 318i, what is the year? Have you checked relays, and depending on the year, these cars have ews modules that is a bit tricky to bypass. Unless your experienced at this on BMWs do not bypass ignition system. Hook the system back up using the factory key and try again.

I have a 1995 316i compact and it keeps misfireing, it has had the coil pack replace which seemed to solve the problem for a few miles and thn it started to misfire again. please help


i've had similar issues with a 1999 M3. normally attributed to electrical power levels this could be a low voltage issue.

do you have error codes?

make sure the power contact at the starter motor (between the alternator and the battery) is tightened.

I have also had issues with a cranshaft position sensor. but my favourite culprit of electrical issues is a wet ECU.

the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

you gain acess to it under the hood....
this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
compartment.

the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
sensors....

all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
harness.

I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
one out.

BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

it may be possible that your heater core was faulty and some has by passed it. open hood and check for incoming and outgoing heater hoses into firewall(dash of car). it is also possible that the heater core is plugged, try getting your cooling system flushed

Dashboard dials not working


If your temp and fuel gauges are playing up then check ALL the fuses under the bonnet. My brother in law's 1998 381Ti compact started playing up with the fuel and temp gauges swinging about like they had a mind of their own. Turned out to by the rear brake light fuze....
