i'm having trouble starting my car. I had to have it jumped a week ago at work, and it was fine for the ride home. however i didn't drive the car all week because i was in new mexico.
So from tuesday morning last week until this morning, the car had not been started. i figured it would not start because the battery did not recieve enough charging on the way home that night from work, and it just sat for a few days. however i spent an hour trying to jump my car today, to no avail. for all my mechanical knowledge, i've actually never had to jump a car.
so naturally i went to my manual and it told me what to do. upon connecting everything and turning the booster car on, nothing happened. I read on a thread here that with BMW's you have to let the booster car run for a while to charge up your dead battery.
I charged it twice @ 10 minutes each time, again, to no avail. i should note that i tried the 'charging' method by applying the jumpers to the battery in the back, and not the jumper terminal in the front of the car. I did however hook the jumpers to the jumper terminal up front and try it, but to no avail. my car was just turning over, it couldn't get over the hump. i also heard this beeping when i was turning the key that sounded like it was from behind the fuel gage.
i could not remember how much fuel i had but i knew it was less than half a tank. so i drove up to the gas station (lucky for me it's on the end of my street) and filled up my 5 gallon mini tank. when i got home and started pouring it, it started coming back out!!!. now i put the nozzle into the fuel..thing. i didn't just pour it. i don't know what the hell is happening. i'm so pissed!
somebody help me pleaseeee. tell me i'm an idiot and i just connected wrong. but i know i didn't i cross referenced it with the damn manual like 30 times.
