Service Overdue - Car does not start.

Asked by Apr 01, 2017 at 06:36 AM about the BMW 3 Series

Question type: General

My BMW is overdue for service... Battery is still fine, all lights come on as well as radio. What might be the problem for the car not to start? Can it be due to the service that's overdue for a long time now?

If that were the problem you would be the first person to have it happen ... However if you would have had it serviced then perhaps it would have saved you from this happining


Service overdue is not the issue. You are about to discover why many of us here don't think a used BMW is particularly reliable. On top of that, they are very expensive to repair.

There could be a lot of reasons for that Try googling more start-.html

If the car is overdue 5000 into service you need to turn key to ingition 1 and let the service indicator stop blinking, once that happens it will start.
