my bmw 05 x5 has starting issues latlely , sometimes it cranks and sometimes it doesnt , we checked the battery , fuses, fuel pump and they all seem to be working good. so we replaced the fuel relay switch it was like 30 bucks it started right up , it seems like it does this in the cold ...please help!maybe one of the above is messed up ..i bought it a few weeks ago
i should have said it still doesnt start every time even with the relay switch replaced
Replace the fuel filter and then look at the fuel pump again. It might be starting to fail. If you have close to 120K or more, it's time to replace.
ok will do !!!thanks
Does it crank and no start or does not do anything?
u have to put it on an bmw scanner like gt1 or ista it could be from a spark plug or the fuel filtre
There might be enough power in batter for dash lights, but evidently not enough to turn the engine. Try getting a jump start, let the car run awhile to see if the battery will charge. Check ignition. alternator, starter. Sometime it occur due to bad connection. Take your car to certified European Auto Tech for right diagnosis. Call 972- 351-8964
