Easy job. Just make sure the terminals on the new battery are the same as the old one so that it does not rub on anything. Also remove the snorkel to get to the tie down.

Wont start after battery change

Check and make sure the battery was installed correctly.
If it is, Check the battery to see if its charged and working. You may need to purchase a new battery.
Another issue may be that you have the wrong battery for your particular vehicle. Check in the owners manual or go to a parts store for information on the battery type.

I have a 1995 BMW 740i, I changed the car battery Now My key want open the trunk lid in the remote mode.

Volvo's do the same thing. You have to reset the computer when you get a new battery. Go to autozone and they will scan your car and clear your codes for free. That should fix the problem. If it doesn't post the question again.

My 740i bmw will not start only click i get a jump off and drive it for hour or longer soon as i cut it off it does the same thing

One of two things could be the issue. I would drive it to an AutoZone or similar parts store. They will check the battery (under load, as any battery will normally show 12+ volts with a voltmeter) and should be able to determine if it is the battery or the voltage regulator. Unfortunately if it is the regulator you may have to get another battery as well. But since you can drive for an hour or so after a jump, I would say the battery is not holding charge correctly and needs to be changed. Hope this helps

Hi there I own a bmw 325i here is whats happening. Car wont start sometimes it cranks like its about to start but never does this happens every blue moon and is really scary. Import cars says they dont...

When did this start happening? If you're in a cold climate it could be due to a near-dead battery with the cold temps preventing it from turning-over. It could also be the spark plugs becoming faulty.

Generally, if it's a problem starting it should only be a handful of things:
Starter/Sparkplugs, Battery, and gas. A regular garage should be able to figure out why almost immediately if it's one of those things through expertise or process of elimination.

If it's not any one of those, I would go to a BMW certified mechanic who would know the particulars about your year/model.

The A/C has recently been recharged, but intermittantly will not work. Usually works first thing in the morning, but often stops working after an hour or so of driving, particularly if it's hot outside.

to recharge properly, they should be vacuumed first and then add the exact amount of refrigerant and oil recommended. if not, you're gonna have problems.

2004 BMW X5 4.4i Left lights on resulting in flat battery. Car was jump started from another vehicle (Ford Transit van). Everything fine for a few days. Now, intermittently the radio/sat nav goes haywire!...

sounds like your car has the multi function steering wheel, i know on the 7 and 5 series they come out of sync, im not sure why.
its about £75 to get plugged in at the dealers and they reprogram it, sometimes i have had the odd car with a damaged slip ring, it does all sorts of things, 1 in particular kept on beeping the horn,
i would say if u got 1 urs got upset when battery flat.

Changing battery on a 2004 bmw 325ci

There's nothing special to watch for, just don't damage anything physically. What you need to do is only to unscrew everything, replace the battery and screw it all back as it was. Maybe only to watch that you don't unscrew some parts all the way, only as much as you need to release it, so you don't loose the screws. Believe me I know - I work in a factory that produces the whole electrical system for BMW 3 Series ;)
Anyway, here I found a detailed instruction with pictures:
