    My otherwise-lovely 650i 2008 auto has a quirk. I don't use it often, and short journeys are fine. After a long journey, particularly if it has been in traffic towards the end, it doesn't restart. Ignition on, brake pedal depressed and then hit the starter button... and a click from under the...

    Hello all, BMW E60 520d (M47 engine) auto 2006, 100k on clock, regularly serviced. Car wouldn't start this morning, was completely dead when I entered the key... I assumed it was the battery (which I think hasn't been changed for a few years). Installed a new battery but it still wouldn't...

  4. My 320d is suddenly a non-starter

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi everyone, Got a curious case with my 2001 320d. It's the 136 bhp model before I get into it... I had left the car sitting for a few weeks and the battery went flat, so today I jumped the car and it started just fine. I didn't drive her but instead just left her idling to charge the battery...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hello, was just wondering if someone has an idea what is at fault here. Basically, it won't start. It was working fine yesterday and today... When I turn the key it doesn't turn over, but makes a buzzing type sound. All the lights are working and stereo etc. I've checked the battery and...

    Driving along the motorway, car was running as normal. There was a slight 'splutter' when driving along at 70mph, but then returned to normal. 15 minutes later, after cruising along at 80mph, it was as though the accelerator pedal became unresponsive. There were no warning lights, everything...
  7. E346 320D - another non-starter.

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    OK so I drove home a couple of weeks back with no problem, parked the car on the drive and now it won't start. It turns over quite happily I've read the codes and got 3 glow plugs not working and rail-pressure on start fault (which is what I'm most worried about). If I clear the codes and try...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi guys, I hope someone has some experience of this, as my car seems to have immobilised itself and I need to get it running as soon as possible! I have a 1997 E36 328i saloon. The back story is that the car had been standing for a while, and the battery depleted. I removed it to charge it...

  10. 2000 E46 318Ci - Non-starter plus wierd electrical goings on!

    Auto Electrical Forum
    I have been experiencing some problems with the electrics on my car. Approx 5 weeks ago I thought I got a flat battery - car started fine with jump leads. Strange thing is the jump leads are barely needed - it will start without the "good" car being started at the first turn of the key. This...
