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.

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

So what is your final solution? Did you replace your fuel filter? I have the same issue. I replaced the fuel pump relay but still have the same problem. Thanks in advance.

I have a BMW X5 35i and it's doing the same thing. And my sound in the interior doesn't work. No sound at all but if I have my blue tooth hooked up to my phone and make a call they can hear me but I can't hear them.

My final solution is to replace the battery. It turned out the battery is bad. Luckily it is still under warranty, so the dealer replaced that for free.
