Question about BMW 530
Start with the safety interlock. If you have an automatic transmission, put your foot on the brake and shift thru the gears while holding the key to start. If the engine cranks, adjust or replace the safety interlock switch.
If you have a standard transmission, remove the cable from the switch above the clutch pedal and connect the terminals in the connector with a paper clip, then push in clutch and try to start. If that works, replace the switch.
If the problem is not the interlock, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
