1991 e34 needs a charger AND jump in order to start??

This has been an on going problem in my e34, we have only done the double jump process one time, it seems thats the only way she`ll turn over.

The battery is Brand new, we got it tested last week just to make sure.

When I double jumped my car and got it idling it worked great! unplugged everything and went for a 20 minute stroll,had a little fun up in the curvy hills of washington state so on and so forth.

I get back home and pull in the drive way and shut off my car, I waited for 30 seconds and tryed starting my car up and it acted like I had a dead battery!!!

It turned over 2 times following the clicking sound of the solenoid!!!

It has been 2 days now and I dont even have enough juice to unlock my electronic doors

Any and all help is appriciated.

This may be a serious short draining the battery, or maybe a bad alternator or both.

sounds like diabetes...

Not sure what to do or check, maybe someone can jump start my brain towards some direction.

Checking the alternator can't hurt.

well heres a rare one!

I didnt drive my bimmer enough! ?? I guess everytime that i jumped my car and let it idle or just drive for a few minutes it wasnt able to hold a decent charge.

Well it seems my first post here on bimmerwerkz was completely pointless

Thanks witeshark!
