What model is it? If you send the last 7 of the VIN, I can tell what it is.

I had that issue a while ago with my 04 X3. It sounds odd as you might think it's a battery or an electrical issue. The engine is actually flooded. I know it's hard to embrace this one but try turning the key and holding it for about 2 min. DO NOT STOP! You should find that the engine will seem as if it's going to turn over and if you listen, it will spin faster and faster until it fires. Now another trick is to unplug a few spark-plug wires so you are trying to fire less cylinders. After almost hitting the 2 min mark, the engine started and it smoked for a little while. I did not have an issue after this but learned that different temps and humid levels can cause this style of flooding or vapor lock as some might call it. I hope this helps!

It's a diesel, not a gas motor bud.
