Engine Mechanical problem
2000 BMW 530 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
Hi, I went to the supermarket and all was fine then when I got back to the car the battery was completely dead. I jumped it off then charged the battery back at home but then I could not start the car even with jump leads.
I thought the battery was duff (and it was) so replaced it but the car still will not start - it turns over and tries to start but it just will not fire. All other electrics seem to be ok and fuel is being supplied from the pump.
Would the flat battery have tripped something out that I cannot see? E.G do I need to reset anything on the computer or do you think there is something else wrong - it seems too much of a coincidence that the battery went flat and suddenly I cannot start the car.
Any help appreciated.
