Question about 2008 BMW 535i Sedan

1 Answer

I just bought a 2008 BMW 535i and the battery has already drained twice. The first time the battery drained in my driveway and another time it happened 1 hour away from home, leaving my wife stranded late at night. The second time, my wife drove for an hour, let it sit for an hour, then got back in and it wouldn't start.

The original equipment battery on this car is weak. I had to put a trickle charger on the battery for my 2008 BMW 535i to keep it charged. Your other option is to buy an aftermarket battery that is tougher than the original and costs less (about $110 versus $435).

If Im not mistaken the battery is under the rear seat bottom on the passenger side of the car there should be a release handle or a access panel that will allow you to move the seat bottom to get to the battery. hope this gives you sopme help.

Where is the post under the hood of a 1991 BMW 535i that I can use to charge the battery?

Did somebody tell you there was a post under there? They are talking about the battery post. If your battery has side mount terminals, it has no posts, and the side mounts are a nightmare to charge up. But it can be done. Is the battery getting weak? Did you check the water? Check the electrolytic stuff to see if it is worth charging. One of those floaty ball things. Walmart will check it for you for free, they like selling batteries. Your alternator should be charging the battery, unless it has been sitting a while. Hope this helps.
