Question about BMW 325

2 Answers

2002 BMW 325i - engine won't turn over / start.

When attempting to start the dash flashes and goes "click". A new BWM spec battery was installed approx. 2 months ago.
I'm guessing an electrical short somewhere, but where do you start looking?
Because everything is computerised wouldn't a faul show up at a service? The cars was serviced not long (maybe a month) before we had to replace the battery.

    Only bought it a month ago. Had it serviced by Saab dealership and only fault showing on programme was a wiring fault from Bluetooth phone access being incorrectly installed. Had this fixed and new battery put on as was sometimes a little slow to start.

Take battery back get a new one or have it tested. like auto zone or a parts store even wal-mart now. If this battery was just dead and needed charged. Then sounds like to me you have a bad alternater. you can rely know if you can get the battery charged up and get the car to start. and while the car is running pull the positive connection of the battery if car dies bad alternater .

    Did you ever get your bmw fixed. I am having the same problem and I am also afraid to take it to the dealer. Maybe is a fuse or a relay. Please let me know. nelsonaranam@aol.com

Would begin by replacing car battery and if it starts, check for codes. If no scan tool available, drive to closest auto parts store that can check this at no charge.

Bmw 325i wagon slow starting then totally no turning over at all.All lights work dash is all lit up .Battery is fully charged car has faint click.but still wont turn over.I think it might be the starter...


I would try replacing the battery first. Even a fully charged battery can have bad cells which will cause the battery to not have enough "power" to turn over the starter/engine.
