Take trim back off. See if start. If start, leave trim off. You may have one of those grounding trim cars where you put the trim on and it shorts the battery and then there's not enough electrical electrons to start the motor.

Replace sparks plugs

Remove four nots or screws depending on production date on top of the engine intake. After removing these the "BMW" covers that are over the valve covers need to come off, they pull straight up and are held on by rubber grommets. After removing these you will see the coils. Lift the lever up on each coil connector and lift up on the coil. The rear coils are hard to remove and hit the edges of engine compartment insulation and sometimes the fuel and a/c lines. Those can be pushed slightly out of the way to allow coil to be removed. This will give you access to the plugs.

How do i reset camshaft servodrive on 2006 bmw 535xi

Hi Allen, In addition to removing the covers did you remove anything else? If not, reassembling should do the trick. If yours is the engine with VANOS and Variable valve lift (with electronically controlled motor, make sure all connection and pick up sensors are good. If you've lost spark and injection, check the crankshaft and camshaft pickup sensors. Regards John

My m6 keeps overheating in slow traffic after a while.BMW have changed the fan twice but this has not solved the problem. Any advice?

if you run the a/c in slow traffic it will cause more heat in the engine bay then the car can ex spell if that is not the case try putting in a new thermostat and also when the thermostat is being replace have a very through cooling system flush done.hopefully this helps a bit.

2007 BMW 328xi brand New Water pump will not run, I have 12.4 volts to both wires at pump. ground is good. any ideas? Worked on it all last night, Here's the history: the 328xi was overheating, replaced the thermostat. Still overheated, no change. Replaced water pump, worked for a couple days then overheated. Pump did not seem to be running. Did the bleed test to hear pump.. no pump. Moved the pigtail plug around a bit ... started. Ok, figured pump came with a new pigtail for a reason. Cut off old, soldered on new. Seem to be good, pump ran every time I tried and the car ran for the better part of a week, making progress, hadn't ran for that long since problem started. So up till now, New thermo, New pump, New pigtail, New BMW Antifreeze, flushed cooling system, pressure tested, fuses all test good. Back to the ran better part of a week long behold coming out of the bank, it got hot. Now I bought another pumpdifferent supplier put car up on the rack and test pump with bleed test.. no pump, power to both wires and good ground, moved it around and still no pump. Plugged in old pump, still nothing. Bench tested old pump and it ranbut noisy same test to the new one still in car and ran fine. Checked voltage to both wires at the pump during the bleed test, 12.4. Started the car 13.3v, by the way charger hooked up whole time. Still doesn't run. Took a long screwdriver to assist in removing the electrical plug on pump and I see faint sparks, like the case is a little hot- has power somehow. At this point I guess I need to remove pump and thermo. Inspect and install new, this is becoming a real mystery to me, car ran great year an 1/2 prior. Thoughts? Now I have the new pump installed, run the bleed system and I have full power 12.5v to both wires but pump is not running. Touch a screwdriver to the pump case then to chassis ground light sparking, Take a DC voltmeter touch pump and chassis ground and get a reading of 6.3v??
