When I arrived at work I turned my car off, soon as I turned my car off the vehicle lost all power soon as I pressed the stop button. I couldn't even get my key out there was 0 power. We hooked it up to a jumper the power returned but my car will not start. It is not getting fuel or fire. If anyone has any idea of what could cause this issue please help.  2008 BMW 328i. Thanks

BMW E60 V8 No crank No Start

10 Feb 2020 •
I bought a 2004 BMW 545i for a very attractive price. No Crank No start with a broken keyfob. 1st thing I do is buy a new battery & attempt to start the car. Everything turns on Dash works in “on” position, when the key is turned to “Start” .... No sound not even a click from the starter relay. Due to my past experience with BMW’s & EWS problems I bite the bullet , invest in a new key from a reputable locksmith.

2003 325ci service engine light

3 Feb 2020 •
BMWs are new to me but I’ve had this car for 2 years. Has 172k miles and runs and drives as good as you would like. The service engine light comes on then off again. Every time I say I better check it out it goes away. It might come back on in a week or a month later. Then repeat. It has come on and I go somewhere and get back in and it’s off that fast. Crazy it’s a good car . Just bought a code reader but have not tested it yet because light went off again. Can weather or other elements cause this. I keep oil change with the highest grade and premium gas.
