My Ride: 2002 BMW 325XI
Fixed-Thank you all!

Hey everyone. Thank you so much for your time, knowledge, and suggestions. I could've sworn the battery was fine (it was virtually brand new-just a few months old) because everything was lighting up and working. Turns out I just replaced with another new battery and it started right up. It appears that three seconds of my error was enough to destroy a $165 batttery! The car runs and drives just fine. I love these BMW's. Lesson learned I guess. No matter how much of a hurry Im in, no matter what temperature, I will at least make sure I am working with a light! Thanks again to you all and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
