My car won't start/crank (bmw 530i 2007). I replaced the battery, starter is fine. It lights but won't start.
The forums state that it might be the integrated supply module. I went to the dealer and they sold me one. I cannot find it where it suppose to go, some sites state that the ISM was removed on my model and year.
Any suggestions?

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

It should be underneath the spare tire in the luggage compartment, but I need the part number of the part they sold you to verify
