Question about BMW 3 Series
I have a BMW 316i e36 compact which will not turn over. Battery is new & fully charged but car has been laid up for a while due to this problem. Have checked starter motor, alternator and fuses(ones I can find) but all seem to be ok. Have bypassed the ignition and the engine will turn over but fails to fire. I am assuming the problem may lie with the ignition or immobiliser
Should be a 318i, what is the year? Have you checked relays, and depending on the year, these cars have ews modules that is a bit tricky to bypass. Unless your experienced at this on BMWs do not bypass ignition system. Hook the system back up using the factory key and try again.
