Thank you for your generous offer to donate. I am not sure I understand your description of the problem. My first question is when you say " cranking the car it wont turn over" and " it only cranks and makes a ticking noise" Do you mean the starter engages and will turn the motor over but it wont start? Is it not turning the motor over and just making a ticking noise? Second question is when did this problem start, has it ever done this before? Did it start when the battery was replaced? If yes then there may be an electronic reason for the failure and a BMW professional may need to be retained in order to remedy this issue. If the motor is turning over and will not start, is there enough fuel in the car for the fuel pump to pick up? Thank you for your patience, I know this can be frustrating to interact in cyberspace and I will do my best to help you out. ♥
