The 335i is notorious for fuel system problems. The high pressure fuel pump is under warranty by BMW up to 120,000 miles or 10 years. Its an expensive fix so if they can honor the repair have them do it for free. Otherwise we can handle it.

There are too many variables. It could be a crank sensor. Its best to have it towed into a shop and checked out thoroughly.

You may need a tune up, it could possibly be spark plugs, coils, or it could be a mass air flow sensor or you may have a vacuum leak. I recommend getting it smoke tested for leaks by a shop 1st. If you have a check engine light that help direct the mechanic to the problem.

You may have a battery or alternator problem. I would have a knowledgable shop load test the battery and test the charging system as well as scan the check engine codes. That will give you a good idea of what is going on. At Motorsport in San Mateo we scan and test your battery and charging system at no cost.
My guess is the engine code is for the battery voltage dropping and your alternator causing the battery to drain. But of course we would need to confirm this.

Even with a dead battery you should be able to use your actual key to insert and unlock the door or trunk to get to the battery.

Check the power steering reservior if your low on fluid or it could be a bad rack and pinion or power steering pump or a power steering hose leak. If you can have the car lifted on a hosit and inspected you can check if you have any power steering leaks.
