Could be a problem with the security chip in the key.

I have abmw 3 series 1996 parked it last night perfectly ok this morning it wont start the engine turns over very quick as normal could it be because its damp and cold outside what do you suggest?


I would replace Distributor Cap & Rotor; and especially all Ignition Wires (aka: spark plug wires) When it is damp outside, old and possibly cracked wires is the leading cause of engines not starting due to wires arcing (throwing sparks to other parts of the engine) and causes no spark where it is really needed and that is at your spark plugs so the engine will start.

Rumbling noise when in 2/3/4 gear


When you think the engine is really powerful even my dads one makes that sound. I think it's the parts like airbags, handbrake area which have degraded due to Aging.

Battery drains in my 1984 BMW 318i


I have the same car I had the same problem.If you have the correct battery for your car with the same problem you have a short or positive ground in your dash/electric fuel pump/fuse box also be carefull of how you take the key from the ignition and if they're old replace them.

BMW 318i wont start engine


I would have the battery tested. When they get cold they get weak. Next I would look at the wires on the starter to see if their loose.
