I have a request on behalf of my pensioner next door neighbour, he has a 1994 518 and had a starter motor issue (the AA had to tow him back and said the starter was shot), so we got hold of a secondhand but in excellent condition starter motor.
This was fitted and all was well for the first 2 journeys but now this has failed completely (there is no sound at all, it doesnt even try to turn the engine over), the garage (non BMW) said this too had been burned out.
Anyone have any idea why this is happening or what we need to check ??
(sorry i prefer the other german manufacturer
