shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off. try with key turned to ignition position. suspect starter solenoid on starter motor. suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown. suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.
hi gloria_garre, indications are very similar to what one would experience when the electrical portion of the ignition switch starts to fail. Most of the powered accessories such as the radio, mid, cluster displays etc are directly powered from the electrical portion of the ignition switch. In my experience at the dealer, I have had to replace a few switches, one being on my own parents 2002 530i. I would recommend having it checked, and also make sure your charging system is working to specifications.
