Angry 2004 BMW525I won't start...new battery

Ok...I'm confused! The car did send a message saying battery level low, recharging, will disconnect soon. It did. Replaced battery and the message still reads as if it is not replaced. Did I lose memory? Does it have to be reprogrammed or what? I thought replacing it after disconnect it would start.

I would think there's an electrical drain that has yet to be found and fixed.

hmm...ok, is this an easy fix? All my power is on...radio, bells, windows. I hear the click and that's it.

I would begin with the relays in the fuse box. Best of luck.

FYI...it was the starter. It still needed battery as well. Wow, I had my Honda for 15 years and never replaced anything like starter, alternator, etc.
