    Immobiliser will disable the starter but so will a sticking starter. Like ddire said when it happens maybe the INPA would pick it up but I dont know anything about them. Have you tried using the spare key?

    Hi Jim, I carry both the key fobs with me, as of yesterday I'm only using the spare key fob, see if its a duff main key that is giving grief, and we'll take it from there..

    So after last night debacle where I had to wait 45min for the car to spring back to life, this morning I took up to my BMW indy specialist A1BN Stevenage, showed the videos I took of the car not starting, and left it there.

    on first views, he said it might be the starter motor but lets see.

    Hi All,

    well I bit the bullet and got the starter motor replaced with a brand new one. my indy offered me a recon one with all the warranties, but I thought sod it, lets go for a brand new one pricy but lets see if it was the cause of all the grief.

    on taking the old one out and removing the case my guy at the garage said that it was not in bad condition, but that does not mean that it could not have a dead spot and it was the original factory fitted starter.

    anyways, lets see. in the mean time between the sensors that where beeping and this starter motor change.. we are 550 quid down and its only Feb..
