2003 BMW Z4 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 51000 miles
This is an odd one for me. Car ran fine and cranked right up yesterday. Wife went to get in this morning and it acted like a totally dead battery. Typical clicking of the starter solenoid/dimming lights.
Went to Jump it with my truck and turned the key and lights all lit up and had plenty of juice. Stereo presets were gone, and the dash had readouts of
Here's the weird part. The battery solenoid was CLICK - CLICK - CLICK. Not the rapid fluttering. But Wham Wham Wham of the solenoid seriously smacking the starter. The truck battery has more than enough crank to turn over that little engine, and you can hear it engage the starter flywheel, but it never turns the engine over. I let it sit and charge a while with same results. Battery " eye" shows green.
