Had flat on passenger...

Had flat on passenger rear . changed tire ...now car won't start completely dead nothing...745i 2004 bmw

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever changed a tire on this vehicle?

Yes...i did leave it up on jack for couple of hours due to spare needing new valve stem ...did notice some corrosion on battery ..negative side ...besides that car was running fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 745i yourself? What have you tried so far?

I put it on a battery charger..to see if battery can be charged
