E92 2006 335i Starting Problem - Click

Hi all,

I have a 2006 335i E92 and I am starting to lose my faith in BMW, i have already had the fuel pumps replaced on this and now I have a starting issue. The car was drove in the morning, started and drove fine, then about 3 hours later I go to start the car again and when I press the start button everything goes off, lights, dash etc and also there is a loud click. Once everything comes back on there is sometimes warning lights about ABS failure and tyre monitor failure. I assume this is just something to do with the electrical fault.

I have been searching alot for this problem, i came accross quite a few people with the same problem but the suggested fixes range from replacing the battery, intelligent battery sensor, battery leads, ecu, tightening bolts in the engine bay etc.

I have had low battery charge warnings in the past if i leave the radio on for a minute without the engine running, so yes i believe i need a new battery. But i still should be able to jump or charge the battery so it tries to start, which does not happen.

I have also tried disconnecting the IBS from the battery with no joy.

I dont really want to get the car towed and also dont want to buy a battery if that does not solve the problem.

I will upload a video tonight of the problem

ANY help is highly appricieated.

It sounds like you have a bad connection to the battery. If you do not want to buy a new battery outright, have your current battery (no pun intended) checked.

check for resting voltage and also have it load tested.

Just an update, checked battery voltage, pretty clear it needs replacing... only showing around 8V. From speaking with BMW service & repair and another BMW specialist they both tell me that i should be able to jumpstart the car no matter how fried the battery is.. Does anyone have an idea on where to start with finding the problem?

I have a diagnostics cable but i could never get the software to install INPA etc
