these cars use a battery monitoring module, so you must be
very careful when trying to jump-start or replace the battery. if your car has the AGM (glass mat) battery, you
cannot use a conventional battery charger; must be specifically for the AGM battery. suggest getting this diagnosed by a good local BMW specialty shop. you are better off having the car towed instead of experimenting
with repairs.
