It sounds more like the alternator is bad. This will cause the battery to run down.

I would assume that you have a check engine light on and you probably have a misfire. Go to your local parts store(autozone, o'reilly's, etc.), they do scanning for free. Get the codes and let me know and I will continue to help.

Just had the exaust filter sorted on my 2005 525d but has started to loose power again when trying to exelerate seems to use a lot of fuel at the same time

Does your car have a diesel particulate filter? Is that what you mean? If so your first question should be, is this the right car for you? Cars with this filter do not cope well with lots of short trips and no 50+ mph runs. These short trip will make the filter full and it will need a regeneration, a high rpm 50+ mph run or a for regen at a dealer. The filter may be ruined already. If so it will dump diesel in your engine oil. The system uses diesel to burn off the soot. If the filter is faulty/ bad this extra diesel will be dumped in your engine oil. So check the oil level ASAP, as the extra pressure from the high oil level can kill your engine.

Engine wont start back up

This is a strange one that might not be easy to find. My ball park guess is that you have an ignition or ignition relay problem. See if jiggling the keys while starting helps this. I don't think that the amount of time you are waiting really has any bearing on this problem. Other problems could be a grounding issue, starter, maybe battery or alternator.

Where is the fuel door release button on a bmw 525d 2005? or is there one, jus have one for a few days and cant refill the fuel

Unlocking the front drivers door usually unlocks the fuel filler cap. With the front door unlocked, push the side of the fuel filler door in and it will open.

Let us know if that works.
