Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Try charging your battery as a first course of action. Try to disconnect the battery while parked or when it will sit overnight. On the morning, reconnect the battery and start the car. If it does start then the battery is good but if it doesn't, then the battery is faulty for it's not holding charge. If that's the case, the battery will surely need replacement.
If it drains the charge when parking overnight with the battery connected then try checking grounded wires on the fusebox. It can be hard to tell and I suggest that you take an auto electrician with you to trace out the fault.
Hope you find this helpful and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I solved the problem by resetting the circuit. Basically, I disconnected the battery and then it worked!
