Help Please! My new(to me) E39 BMW 528i wont start!

1997 BMW 528i w/192k my new car that I just bought and was very happy with (had a crappy 1993 s10 before it) and it ran like a beauty before yesterday. When I bought it the check engine light was on a few others but it ran great and everything worked except for an occiasional hard shift from 2-3rd but that was no big deal.

Now MY PROBLEM lol, I go out to start the car 2 days ago and it just plain wouldn't start, all lights go on and etc but no start or crank or even tick. So this morning I go and jump it and the car started with no problem on second turn. So I decide to go and replace the battery with a brand new MAXX 42N battery which is met for my car and it still doesn't start. All the fuses are good, I don't know how to check relays but the fuel pump works, and some electronics under the hood make noise when the key is turned to on, but no clicks or cranks.

Help please I love this car and I do not really have money to spend on fixing it

Welcome to the Werkz.

It sounds like some sort of issue with the ECU, possibly a bad connection between the security in the car and the key, do you have a second key that you can try?
