87 BMW 325 I Conv won't crank
I seldom use the car but start and run it about once a week. Battery was dead but would take a jump. I replaced the battery and now the car won't crank or take a jump start. Everything works when ignition is on but no sound from engine. If i jump the starter it spins but nothing else. I've checked all the fuses I can find but no luck. any thoughts are appreciated.
Due to the age of the car, I would recommend you thoroughly check out the wiring and since you also "jumped" the car you could have simply caused a short in a wire. Pay particular attention to the crankshaft sensor wiring and the starter wiring.
Thanks for the response. I've checked the wiring but I'll recheck a little more closely
