I recently acquired a 96 740iL as a project.
the fan came off somehow and ripped the power steering and radiator hoses.
It also busted up the radiator, expansion tank, and coolant temp sensor wiring.
I have already purchased the replacement parts.
the problems are the following:
I disconnected the battery a few months ago since it wasn't moving anyways.
I had it running then, but after disconnecting the battery it won't even turn over anymore.
all lights and accessories work fine, but the car won't do anything when I try to crank it.
there is some error message saying "ignition lock" or something similar.
I tried to jumpstart it with no luck.
I need your help guys!!!
