Q: My car slowly died while I was driving, what's wrong with it? on 1998 BMW 528i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I was driving about 35 miles an hour and suddenly my car slowed down and died. Everything else is on but the engine. It wont start again, but lights and radio will turned on. What's wrong with it? Is it expensive to fix? Please advise. Thank you.

It could be many things, unfortunately and without experiencing the problem first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests its hard to say. My guess is the fuel pump died but it needs to be determined if you lost fuel, spark or had some sort o mechanical issue. The vehicle needs to be looked at first hand to determine whats wrong.
Thank you for the responsed. Fortunately , it's just the battery. The AAA service did not try and check it , but when it completely died , my boyfriend just jumped it and it start. I bought a new battery and it's now working good again. Thank you again for your advice, I appreciate it.
