2003 BMW 330Ci Question: My car won't start
My car wouldn't start this morning. There's been no previous problems, no warnings. All the lights,radio, etc. are working, but when I turn the ignition it doesn't do anything....no clicking, no sound at all. AAA came out and tried to boost the battery, but there was no change; however the battery wasn't tested (honestly, I don't know where the battery is located in this car). Any ideas? I'm puzzled since I've had absolutely no problems starting the car, and all of the sudden it won't start - Visitor
Few things they could be, in order of likelihood and common faults -Battery (but should be OK as you mentioned a jumpstart had no effect) -Starter motor -Ignition switch -Key -EWS (immobilizer) Check all fuses -Battery voltage should be around 12v, above 9 when attempting to crank -If not noise/confirmation of starter motor engagement, possible faulting solenoid or windings. Check activation wire -If there is no 12v from the small black wire (start activation) on the starter, suspect ignition switch or EWS. I suggest contacting your nearest mechanic, which can be located in the "find a shop" tab above. - Chow
