Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I read on a forum to unplug a plug from the negative battery cable, didn't work. Also checked to make sure the brake light switch worked, as well as making sure the steering wheel lock works
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 3 years ago
Can you please clarify what your question is exactly? Do you want to know possible causes?
Ask Your Own BMW Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I want to know why it isn't starting as previously stated, I put the fob in, foot on the brake, hit the start button and nothing happens, all the dash lights are on
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 3 years ago
I am sorry but you never stated you wanted to know why it wasn't starting (please see above)
There are many things could be. I can explain the likely causes and sinple things to check, but more than likely parts replacements will be required before the car will start. Is this what you are seeking?
