Help Please 3 Series E46, Year 2000

Hiya People.

I have come across a problem after having the car for aprox 10,000 miles, i just got in the car one day and i turned to key and there was nothing, no noises nothing, altho the lights come on fine and so did the radio, and window up and down fine with no power loss, i then turned the key and it started fine, then stopped later that night and turned the car off, then went to start it and it wouldnt, nothing there just a "blank" turn so turned it back and forth a few times and it started.... it keeps doing this sometimes it fires up 1st turn other times there is nothing and other times you have to hold the key "on" for it to start, seems odd.

Any Suggestions Guys?

Thanks

That would seem a bit consistent with a loose connection at some main, central point. Are the battery terminals tightly connected?

look into the starter

Have you look at the starter, seems to be that the starter has brushes or carbons problems, and that is why it is intermitent.. good luck
