Drove my 2012 R1200RT to work, when I went to go home, it

Drove my 2012 R1200RT to work, when I went to go home, it wouldn't start, doesn't make any noise, no clicking...no anything. I charged the battery, which is old, and tried starting it the next day and the same thing. I'm not getting any data in the display like the (!) symbol or the ABS warning. Kick stand is up, single key on key ring, clutch is in, tried in N and 1st. What do you think?JA: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?Customer: I haven't noticed any issue with the clutchJA: What is the model of your '12 BMW?Customer: R1200RT..has most of the bells and whistles on itJA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: Well it's stuck here at work so I'm limited what I can do. I'd at least like to get it to a repair shop.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: The battery is >2 years old but it's showing full charge

Second opinion] Our 2009 BMW X6 50i is currently at the

Second opinion] Our 2009 BMW X6 50i is currently at the dealership for an oil pan repair and replacement of the compressor. After being there for over a week while waiting for a part to be delivered for the compressor, we were contacted by the dealership advising us that a wheel speed sensor and the traction control sensor needed to be replaced. There was never an indication of an issue with either prior to us leaving the vehicle with the dealership. The oil pan repair was completed yesterday and we were advised today that now these two sensors also need to be replaced. What could possibly cause this to happen while the vehicle is just sitting at the dealership waiting for a part for the compressor? Thanks.

I have a 2008 BMW 328i n52. About 6 months ago the yellow

I have a 2008 BMW 328i n52. About 6 months ago the yellow brake light, triangle circle arrow, service engine, car on lift light came on. It had a delayed start or may even have to start 2times. Very sluggish and used a ton of gas. No cruise. I switched car off and let sit for a few minutes then restarted and everything was normal. 6months later it did it again except did it more often. During the last 2 months time I also had a bad rear wheel bearing. I replaced both Rear bearings. Very quite now!! I assumed it was a bad right rear wheel speed sensor. I replaced it. But it it still does it. In the morning there are no lights and everything is fine. Cranks normal. When I move 1ft or half a mile then the lights come in, car jerks or dies and it remains that way. Thoughts? ABS work fine.

When it is started the instrument cluster is working. But

When it is started the instrument cluster is working. But with in 30 seconds it stops working and the Transmission when shifted to drive goes directly to 4th gear. if I drive it for a while the Trans Failsafe program shows on the dash and the gauges start working but the transmission is still in 4th. It does not do this every time but most of the time. Sometimes it works perfectly.JA: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?Customer: the car is a 2001 740i original trans, no leaks and has 200k on the car.JA: Are you fixing your 740i yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I would like to fix it myself I have been working on cars for 30 years and this is a problem I have not seen before. I had the dealer do a Diagnostic and they reset the computer and replaced the two cam sensors and the break pressure sensor on the ABS module. it worked for about 45min then back to the stuck in forth deal.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: The DSC light and the ABS light are on and when this problem occurs
