I know nothing about cars, so I was wondering if someone could help me. I have a 1997 318i and I have been gone out of the country for about 4 months. I recently got back and tried to start it up and nothing would happen, not even clicking noises. My alarm wouldn't even work or keyless entry. So I tried jumping it and it still wouldn't start up for about 20 minutes of trying. I go back later and finally get it running, then drove it around to try and charge it up for about 30 minutes. It ran fine and cd player and lights and everything worked and so I turned it off when I got home. Then tried starting up again last night and all I got was clicking noises and doesn't get at all close to starting. Tried this morning and still nothing, but at least the alarm and keyless entry works. So I'm guessing a charging problem, but don't know how to deal with it. Please someone let me know I'm on the right path and what I should do about it. Thanks!
