Question about BMW 1 Series

1 Answer

I have a BMW 130i 2007. After coming to a stop and switching off the engine, the car will not start again, and there is no engine turn over when the start button is pressed. It seems to be temperamental; after leaving it for a while it might or might not start again. How can I solve this?

If when you do try to start it and you can hear a click. It could be the starter going out. One way to check is when it happens hit the starter with something hard, several times, you will not hurt it. you might have to try it a couple of times. If it starts then the starter is bad. replace it.

Bmw 3 series electrical faults

Hi sounds like the same problem I had crankshaft sensor my battery light came on and the engine would cut out sometimes would start straight away other times took 5mins to start again.
But would get a garage to check fault codes costs about 40pound but could save you 100's as it may be a faulty alternator/battery.

Hi Fadi, Salem, The BMW is fitted with a safety device which stops the key going to the start position twice, in other words it stops the key from being turned and engaging the starter motor if the engine has been started. It is normal. Shalom John

2007 BMW 328i engine shuts off under 10 mph (including when turning) after longer drives

Hi Cade
You are driving a possiable dangerous car as you have said Hazzardous yes, if it stopped on you and your on the Hiway you may have an accident.Therefore my opinion is it maybe your computer, crank and cam sensors, 02 sensors you may have 3 or more, your throttle position sensor or switch, your gas filters, dirty airfilters dealer can read codes and trouble shoot more precise BMW nice car needs maintence. You dont want to take any chances but you can try replacing airfilter gas filter is a good start.
