My Ride: 01 325it Wagonator
Unhappy Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Well.. Had a bummer of a week so far.. My much loved Touring decided last friday night to "not start"

Hoping the EWS has not taken a crap.. And the starter did, putting it on the lift at work Thursday night to see if the starter died..

Anyone have any no start issues with their Touring?

My Ride: 01 325iT - 04 Burb
My touring failed to start about 2 weeks ago. Starter was spinning freely. Got it on the lift at work to find that one of the bolts broke and the starter was just being held on with a few threads on the second bolt.

Decided to just replace the starter instead of having to drill out the broken bolt and it was the original starter anyway. Also replaced the original fuel filter (115k miles) She's all good now.

My 2003 touring with 102,000 miles failed to start on friday as well. The starter had been cranking very slowly earlier in the day which made me suspect the starter when the car did not crank later in the day. I had the starter replaced and now she fires up with no problems. It took about three hours labor.Click image for larger version

I hope the starter just took a crap. I hauled it behind our shop at BimmerWorld find out Saturday when I check it. I narrowed it down to the following three.

Starter
ignition switch
EWS.

Hopefully NOT EWS...

Like that blue as vertbody here I think!
Love the quad exhaust, special piping behind the bumper?

For the bad starters : mine did have some troubles too, turn key, no petrol pump, no inner heater ventilator blowing.But all dashlights and dash itself bright.
The starter turns lively but no start at all.
Try 3 or 4 or 5 times and than broem!! Working normally.
Checked everything but nothing found.
At the end I checked the battery, only 11.8 Volts! Replaced the orginal (!!!) more than 11 year old with a fresh one and everything is okay now.

Seems that the 11.8V was unsufficient to power the immobilizer, strange but very true.
