My 2004 BMW 525i won't start (no clicking, slight humm)

My 2004 BMW 525i won't start. I hear a slight humm, but no clicking. All the head lights, dash lights, stereo, and indicators work fine. I connected battery cables to my 2008 Highlander and it still won't start. I drove over 350 miles yesterday (145 miles ea. way) with no issues.

Starter motor solenoid problem by the sounds of it, check the connections are clean and secure, give it a tap with a soft head mallet or hammer handle. If it doesn't spring back into life it will need replacing.

I believe you gain access to it by removing the rear seat then a cover plate in the flooring. Hope this helps.

Why was the battery missing to begin with? I would start by checking all fuses under dash and Central hub. Check for burned in-line fuses,if any, coming off of battery cables.

Hi i have BMW 525i 2004 from time to time when


It is very important that the engine not overheat! The head can crack and this would be very bad.
I think your car is too new to need a new radiator.
Make sure the coolant level is correct.
Check the thermostat housing for leaks.
When the engine is hot, check if the fan clutch is locked up and actually driving the fan. Turn the engine off and grab the fan and try to turn it. It should turn stiffly. If it spins freely the fan clutch is dead.
It is possible that the water pump impeller has failed, especially if it is a plastic one.
