cogioia is an unknown quantity at this point
Tried to start it this morning but getting the fast clicking sound, no cranking, tried to jump start it but same thing, battery indicator suggest battery is OK. Accessories are working, radio is not. Not sure if this is related but car was left unlocked overnight.

Any ideas? Thanks !

Are you sure that you tried jump starting it correctly and that you had good quality jumper cables? Sounds like really a dead battery or loose connections at the battery or at the starter. You can try cleaning the cables and battery posts but 1st I would try jumkp starting it again and make sure your jumper cables are high quality and that they are making good contact. If possible have a friend wiggle the leads when attempting to jump start it to make sure the connection is good. Remember when jump starting to let the other vehicle run at a higher rpm for several minutes to charge your BMW's battery and then SHUT OFF the other vehicle before attempting to start your BMW. This is the correct way to jump start so that you do not do any damage to either vehicles electrical system.
