2005 BMW 325 xit starting problem

Asked by Jan 13, 2014 at 10:42 AM about the 2005 BMW 3 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried to start the car this morning - key in the ignition, turned it, lights started flashing, dashboard lights up, but no cranking...tried again, same results, didn't have time to investigate further so jumped into wife's car so I wouldn't be late for work. It doesn't seem like it would be the battery(?)...any ideas where to start?

I'd say it is the battery. How old is it? You will need to check the voltage to verify.

Thanks - as we've just purchased it from an Acura dealership two weeks ago, I'm not certain of the battery age...but seems a logical place to start.
