Question about 2006 BMW 5 Series
Check the battery and see if voltage is dropping while you are trying to start it. Most likely the issue
Posted on Sep 10, 2012
If it's not under the hood, then the only other place BMW places their batteries is in the trunk. Since it's a Sport Wagon, pull up where the rear spare would be and it will be there, usually on the right hand side.
Hope this Helps,

The number was on a white card stuck in with the manual binder. Or if you don't have it, its located in the trunk, behind the left nav access panel on a silver "TCU" module about the size of 2 vhs tapes stacked together. if you look at the eject button on the nav player its located just to the right and is installed on about a 45 degree angle.
there is a white lable with the "PK" on it. i used a small telescoping mirror but you can also slightly pull back the trunk liner above the unit and it will be easily located. If any of this options works go to Bmw dealer for service and we found it in car computer.

After market parts are not always the best way to go even though they are cheaper to buy. Always go with OEM, they are designed specificly for you auto and come with a good warrenty.
