My 06 bmw 325I starts but then it shuts off while on or running.

Asked by Feb 25, 2015 at 11:55 PM about the 2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

Question type: General

Hello, im new here, hopefully someone
could help me find out what is wrong with
my car. I have a 06 bmw 325I, I took it to
the shop to get 2 of my oil leaks and also to
get a new starter. When I got it back I took it
for a spin, but then just out of nowhere it
shut down, then I tried to turn it back on
and start with no problem, so now its doing
the same thing, even on park it shuts off  
sometimes it last long running but then
shuts off. I already put new battery,
alternator is good. Does any one have any
clue on this. It wasnt doing this before they
fixed the oil leaks and put a new starter.

I'd take it back to the shop or go to a reputable BMW dealer. I also know if you didn't purchase the battery from BMW itself that can lead to issues. Believe it or not you MUST use a BMW battery. Those cars are very sensitive to aftermarket parts
