1988 BMW 528 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 300K+ miles
Battery was not powering the starter, (eg. Click, click, click) so I replaced it with a new one. Once installed, I turned the key to start the car, and heard the dreaded (ie. Once click) bad starter noise. I removed the starter, took it to the auto parts store, where they confirmed that it was old and needed to be replaced.
After installing the new starter, and reconnecting the new battery, I attempted to start the car. Now, I get nothing. No click. No cranking whatsoever.
I am not a beginner with things like this, and yes, everthing went back in as it came out. That said, I've had six BMW's, currently have two, and I've rebuilt the top half of this particular one. Nonetheless, this has me completely stumped.
