Question about 2001 BMW 325

1 Answer

91 bmw 325I

The starter would'nt work but,would if tapped with something. So I replaced the starter... Now it starts most of the time except the heater fan and the electric windows won't work when the engine is running with the key in the run position. The inside electric only works if you remove the key and re insert it into the switch then turned to the second position. I would appreciate your assistance. thanks, Nick

Hi there. It sounds like the car has a short between the II and I position. Something like the ACC and START positions in domestic and imports. And it all happened when replacing the starter. These wires are touching chassis, or ground. Try removing and emplace it again, making sure the wires are not touching GND. If problem persists, then the problem might be in the switch, ergo, requiring further inspection of the electrical system, including the wiring. Also check the fuses and make sure they are not blown. If replaced and still blowing, is a critical shortage, and the risk of an electrical fire will become imminent. Let me know how things go. Good luck.

When the starter goes what effects does it have on a 2001 bmw 325i

Quite simply, you won't be able to start the car. All the starter does is turn the engine over until the cylinders fire. If the starter goes, you'd have to either jump start the car (if it's a manual transmission) or get a new starter.

2002 bmw 325i cranks but wont turn over and start.


Look for weather the battery is fully charged or not some times due to less charging the starter does not works properly.

Also look for the glow plugs weather all of them are getting heated at a time or not.

I have a 2001 BMW 325i and the car wont start. When I go to turn it on it just clicks. I recently changed the sparks plugs and the air filter as well as the oil. what could be the problem?

the "click" sounds like the solenoid on the starter motor is engaging but that the starter is not turning. So either the starter motor has failed or the charge in the battery is too low. Try a "jump" start....if makes no difference, check starter connections....if they all starter time
