Have 2002 BMW 525i. I went to start car this morning and would not start. Only a few dash lights came on. I connected to my 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona running car through post near intake manafold on the BMW using jumpers. Interior lights came on and all dash lights. When I turned the key, all I could hear is the starter solinoid clicking quite loudly while lights dimmed. I then disconnected the battery cables in the bmw trunk and connected the cables using jumpers to the battery of the Charger. Still all I got was clicks. I thought maybe something needed to be reset with anti-theft so I tried to set alarm off while connected to running car. On the BMW, I roled down window, locked door, got out of car and tried to open the door through the open window with the unlock button and the door handle. To my surprise this wouldn't even unlock the car. I didn't know about this feature on the BMW.
I plan on taking the battery to autozone to have it checked.
So does any one have any suggestions on what to do? Is the starter ok since it is clicking? How would I check the starter? Where is the starter on the 525i? Is the starter easy to check/replace?
