Question about 2004 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

I have a 2007 5 series and went to get gas and when I was done I got in my car and push the start button and nothing, my car did not start at all everything else like the lights, radio, Bluetooth etc. I tried jump starting it, but that didn't work either so had to leave my car parked at the gas station. What could it be and what do I need to do? Thank you ~Ann~

Bad battery, they go out just like that. Same thing happened to me. I got my car to the shop and they checked it out and it had a dead cell. I had enough power to run lights and radio but not enough to crank the car. If you can find a shop close they may run a new battery out to your and change the battery for free but a tip might be nice.

it sounds like your car battery is very low or you are very low on gas. try jumpstarting your car or siphoning some gas into the gas tank.

Ran out of gas at the pump and car want start a message pop up on the odomeyer that says error never had problems with this car before thinking it maye need to reset the code

Yes, sometimes what happens when you run out of gas, and error will come up, it normally will shut off fuel pump, and things of that sort as not to burn things out. Sometimes you get lucky and after filling take fuel cap off and put back on. Another thing I have done, is disconnected the battery, and the hooked it back up after a few minutes and the code went off like resetting it. It is nothing to overly worry about, if error is there after running out of gas, its just a error saying, HEY, you have no fuel and your pump has nothing to pump. Try first the battery disconnect thing, if not almost any auto place, can reset your computer. Thanks Mike

I had an oil change and light will not go off. It still says I need an oil change. How do I remove the message for a 2007 Pontiac Torrent.

turn the key on, do not start the vehicle. Depress and release the gas pedal three times. the light should start to blink. Turn the key off and then start the vehicle. The light should go out.

The instructions will also be in your owners manual.

How do I reprogram two remote starters for my 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe?

on the right of the speedo cluster, press the second button down on that set, continue to push until you see relearn remote. once you see relearn push and hold the check button, which is the bottom button on the same set of buttons. Hold it for about 5 seconds it will say relearn active. Then you hold down the lock and unlock at the same time on the remote for about 5 seconds, you will then hear a beep. Do the same with the other remote. Then its done! to close out just push the same button you started with, second from the top.
