04 X5 3.0i won't start

Asked by Aug 17, 2017 at 01:06 PM about the 2004 BMW X5 3.0i AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 bmw x5 3.0i will not start. i mean no cranck, no turn over, no lights
inside the car, no radio, no horn no nothing totally dead. even the fob key will
not unlock the door remotely, but as soon as i jump start the car after a good
five minutes of boosting it start and everything is working fine, but the minute
you park it and removed the key everything is dead. the battery, alternator,
ignition switch was replaced about 3yrs ago. tune-up, start plugs, was done
last year, all fused are good. I don't want to start replacing everything in the car
before i get a solution. WHAT COULD BE MY PROBLEM OR HOW DO I FIX

1 Answer


A weak battery is my guess. Jump starting it and everything fine tells me that. You can have it tested by your local auto parts store to verify, or check the voltage yourself.
