    Ok...

    Battery died (left lights on) car wouldn't start, obviously.

    Connected jump leads, all lights fired up but still wouldn't start...no starter motor sound.

    Tried to "tow-start" when aa man arrived..engine wouldn't fire

    He thinks that because I connected the jump leads whilst the keys were in the ignition I've probably tripped the immobiliser.

    What do you think? If it is immobiliser can I reset myself or is it a BMW only job?

    Thanks!

    Does the starter motor make a clicking sound?

    is the car turning over ? if so could be the fuel pump bang the bottom of the petrol tank quite hard a few times (can you hear the pump prime the engine)

    is the startermoter clicking wen you turn the key ? if so put it in gear and rock the car back and forward as it may be sticking hope this helps bud
