Noob here, serious problem.
Hi all, I am a newbie here and this site has some great info! I'm hoping this can help me:
My 2001 325i seems to have a problem.
When I turn the ignition on, all dash lights come on as usual, but when I try to start the car, nothing happens, I mean nothing.
The only sound that comes from the engine is the noise of the fuel line and a single "Click" approximately 1-2 seconds after turning ignition on. I turned the headlights on while trying starting the motor to see if they dim down, but they stayed bright.
I also hooked a Volt meter to the battery and it read 12.6V. While having it hooked up, I layed the volt meter "on the back widow so I could get a read through the rear view mirror while I was turning the ignition. It only fell to 11.9V, but the starter will not engage whatsoever, like it's getting no power at all.
It's like the ignition is completely disconnected from the starter. Completely stumped...
Thanks to anyone who may lead me in the correct direction.
Could the battery still be a problem?
