When I put the key in, the parking brake and airbag light comes on. When I push the start button once the engine starts without using the clutch
It is a 2007 E60 525 manual pre lci
As far as I’m aware the first press should activate battery and second press should start the engine on all BMWs...
Hi, I was out and about in my F30 330d a couple of days ago for the first time in ages because of lockdown.
I came home and locked the car normally and today (2 days later) I went out to get something out of the boot only to find that it wouldn't open with the keyfob.
I tried to unlock the...

I have problem on bmw e46 318i 2005, N46B20A engine, the thing is when outside is cold, like around 0°C it won't start, or it does start and just shuts down. I did change a lot of things and now cannot pinpoint what could it be. I think it is battery because if I jump start it with...
I, like many other have fallen foul of the lockdown car battery breakdown.
My car needs jump starting, And I know it does turnover as I’ve jump started before.
my problem is that I now need to charge the battery, I’ve purchased a ‘CTEK TIME TO GO 5’ which is supposedly up for the job...
Having some starting issues with the above. Occasionally go to start engine and position 3 on the ignition doesn't even produce a click. I've replaced the battery with a brand new Exide EA1000 and just had the same issue tonight. Can go endless amount of attempts with removing and...
So from about 5 days ago I tried to start my car as normal but realised that upon entering the key fob into the ignition slot a warning light appeared on my dash saying that the fob had ran out of battery (long story short, I had to order a new key due to both of my current keys not...
My battery light comes on random, not every day, I assume it is the original one, so about 10 years old I guess it is just that, voltage to terminals with engine on is 14.7volts, engine off drops to 12.6v
Each time the car parked for two days it drains the battery...

Strange thing happened tonight. Came out to find a dead battery on my E90 (320D, 2005 model)
I got a jump from the neighbor, car started up more or less fine. Drove to work and the entire drive in i seemed to be missing what feels like around 60hp from the engine. It feels like the...

Hi I hope that someone can help ?? My 320d (2010 model) has been off the road for a while whilst I save to replace the clutch and DMF. Yesterday I gave it a clean and decided to disconnect the battery and stick a charger on it in preparation for taking for repairs. Like an absolute idiot, I...
So I ran into this problem, I left my car sitting for close to 2 days, and it completely drained the battery.
I used a multimeter and found that there was a 7Ah draw when car is off/everything turned off.
I was able to stop the draw by pulling the glove box light fuse.
Now the problem...
I'm new here and hoping someone might direct me to an obvious link...
I have a 2005 525i M Sport Tourer - think it's not a regular model (a water pump cost £1000 as it was unique to the engine!). I heard some "S" models are specialist build?
The battery has been draining with the error...
Battery register help please
I think it would be cheaper for me to get someone else to code [Edit, should have said REGISTER] my new battery.
Direct swap for my original 13 year old BMW 110Ah 850A to an Exide EB1100 110Ah 850CCA. So a simple coding.
Any recommendations please? I live in HA8 /...
My nephew has a 630i 2008 E64 convertible and we need to disconnect the battery on it. Are there any specific things that need to be done before disconnect the battery and also after reconnecting it?
