The Battery light being on indicates a charging system problem. This could be Battery, Alternator, or Regulator. If you get the car running, put a voltmeter on the battery and check the voltage. With the engine about 1500 rpm, you should see 13.7 to 15.1 volts. If you are under 13.7, then you have a charging issue - alternator. If you are over 15.1 volts, regulator (probably built into the alternator). If this is good, then the issue is likely either the battery or a poor connection to the battery.

The problem is more than likely a dead cell in the battery, Each cell in a battery is normally 2.3 volts, they will go over but when rested will return to 2.3 volts, with 6 cells it is 13.8 volts, car starts. 5 good cell is 11.5 volts, almost enough to start, any less not a chance, the starter will just click, cold weather is worse. A new battery will solve the problem

Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

Alternator is bad. It is not charging the battery as you drive.

91 Cressida won't start


Lead acid batteries can "die" catastrophically. This is actually not all that uncommon. If the battery is new, it should be under warranty. I would take it back, and have them test it. It it fails, which I believe it will, then there is the problem. If it passes, then your alternator is probably bad. The chances of it being your alternator are slim as you did jump the car off, and drive it for a while. If the battery is too weak to start the car, it will not maintain vehicle operation very long without help from the alternator.
