Question about 1997 BMW 328
May be immobilizer circuit, or, on a 14-year-old car, it could be the starter.
When you get no response, have someone tap the starter with a stick. If that makes it work, it is shot.
I have heard that if you have a manual transmission, you can snake out the starter without removing the intake manifold. Not clear to me how that would help. On an automatic, you have to remove the intake manifold. PITA, but then you will know that you have a nice fresh intake manifold gasket.
