Customer Question
I have a 2007 BMW...
I have a 2007 BMW X3osi and it will not turn over . It has been slowly doing this for the past 6 months where I turn the key and nothing and try again and it fires right up. Today it turned the key and I heard a clicking noise 2x but the car will not turn
over. IT is a BMW battery that when I purchased the car 2 years ago they said it was new. I looked through the little hole on the battery and it is green meaning it is still good.
