My battery died on my 1996 BMW Z3 roadster. I bought a new battery. I put it ithe car. Then I hooked up a trickle charger. Now the car won't start. Can anyone help me? Also, how can I tell if a fuse is...


can i ask why you put a trickle charge on a new battery ? also a trickle charger that is faulty will blow the ecu. its best not to use them on and vehicle from 90's and below as they were not designed to take them. modern cars have overloaders inbuilt into the ecu so lighting strikes etc don't do any damage and the engine will run on.

Old battery would charge but had to charge everytime I drove it. Got new battery and will not crank, what to do?


There's a problem some where in the starter circuit or starter motor /solenoid etc.Check for bad ground frayed cable loose cable
neutral/start switch needs adj. starter pinion jammed.If it started the first time after the new battery and then not the alternator may not be charging.The charging rate should be checked when the battery is replaced.If the headlights are very bright and the radio sounds loud and clear then the battery is not discharged.It should read a full 13volts if tested with a meter.

Are they easy to fit diy bmw z


Not sure about the bmw specificly BUT it is indeed hard, you need special tools and it's best left to a pro who will no doubt charge 1000 or more dollars to replace the convertable top.
