Issues with our 03 BMW 320i

Asked by Sep 15, 2015 at 06:02 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Its runs fairly good. But if we turn the car
and its driven until its heated up, once its
turned off it will not turn on unless its given
10-15min to sit off. It wouldn't make any
sounds as if its going to turn or attempting
to turn but once its given that time it turns
like nothing

May be a bad fuel relay,or the ignition switch.

Thank you ! That helps a lot. we do also notice that there isn't much suction/compression when we open the fuel tank(not sure if this is relevant to the fuel relay) . but if it was the ignition switch would that get affected by heat?

Im leaning more toward fuel relay or pump.

I'm guessing it is in the starter, since you say it attempts to turn over but doesn't .. Heat will affect a worn starter.
