545I: I have a 2005 545I and the car shut off automatically

Customer Question

I have a 2005 545I and the car shut off automatically and when I went to start it again nothing happened. All the dash lights came on. When I tried to jump I would get a couple clicks. The battery is less then 8 months old.
