Check your battery cable connections, they might have come loose.

I had that problem first. Then I tightened the connection. It started once for several seconds but immediately shut down. When I tried to start it again it wants to start but will not turnover

OK, what is the voltage on the battery, more than 12Volts? Then make sure the battery safety terminal didn't get blown accidentally during the battery change.

Yes I have the right kind of gas Everything else is good. I agree and with most cars I have no problem. With the BMW though it is a hole new world :( I think it is the anti theft system. I don't know how to turn it off because my key does not work and I didn't want to buy a new key for $225 from BMW. It is a used car that I bought for my daughter
