Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
Check out if any headlight bulb or ac or ac fan remaining On even after you turn the car OFF.if its remaining ON then that must be draining the car battery.But if nothing is remaining On after you turn the car OFF then check the Ignition switch and its connections.Also check for 12 volt at the ignition switch connections.In many cases the ignition switch of the car goes bad.the ignition switch is part of the car where you insert the car key to start the car.if the switch is internally faulty then it will not turn the car OFF ,even when you turn it OFF.Also check the connection between battery to starter and connection between battery to alternator.If any of the connection is loose or not connected properly the battery will get drained.If the battery is too old then it can be actual fault of the battery.In many cases when battery gets old,it stops holding its charge and gets drained in few hours of charged. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
