Question about 2003 BMW 325
Hi, the problem could be a number of things. First, check for a security or anti-theft light on the dash. If none, try starting it in neutral rather than park. You can also try shifting thru the gears while holding the key to start (with your foot on the brake in case it starts in gear). This will test the safety interlock adjustment. If that doesn't work, next check for a start relay in the relay box under the hood. If you see one, try swapping it with the horn or A/C relay. If you don't see one, then we're down to checking the starter itself. By jumping the starter solenoid, you'll be able to tell if the problem is the starter or the starter circuit. This test is explained in the following post. Pleae make sure the car is in park or neutral with the parking brake set before running this test. If the battery and starter are good, it will turn during this test. After running this test, please get back to me on where you stand.
