86 bmw 325es starting problems

i have a bmw 325es i tryed to start it and it shut off because it was cold but it did this about 10 times and now when i try it, the starter seem like it isnt connected or somthing it wont even tick its done this before but i cant figure it out. i tryed to hook up a charger to it if the batterie isnt working but the fule pump works so its not the batterie.

Starting Problems

Be sure and check to see if the starter is grounded good. I know it sounds weird but even though the casing is bolted to the engine it still may not ground good. I ran a wire from one of the bolts on the end of the starter motor to the shock tower ground by the battery to fix mine. Try to use a jumper wire from the positive battery to the outside terminal on the selenoid and see if you get anything if it isn't the ground. Hope this helps
