Question about 2001 BMW 330
Check your starter solenoid (usually near battery). It's a very cheap part to replace, so if it's not the problem, you aren't out too much money. It you don't know what a solenoid is, I'll fill you in so it'll make a little more sense to replace it. A solenoid is an electromagnet that bridges two high-amperage connections to complete a circuit. When you turn the key to Start, it doesn't make a direct connection with the starter, but rather it turns on the electromagnet in your solenoid to complete the circuit of another connection which makes the starter turn. I had the same problem last year. The first thing I replaced was the solenoid and that ended up being my problem.
