2007 BMW X5 won't start

Asked by Apr 16, 2017 at 07:42 AM about the 2007 BMW X5 3.0si

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Looking for information that maybe the cause of my problem. My X% started finewith a little hesitation a couple of times but this last time I cut the truck off ran in a building for about 15 mins went to crank up truck nothing dead silence. The funny thing is all instruments inside works and radio and head lights come on. I can hear relays opening and closing but when I push the start button nothing. Looking for some help with this.

Might just be a weak battery. BMW's need a fully charged battery to operate properly due to all the systems. Check the voltage. How old is it? If voltage is low and you can jump start, I would think about replacing the battery.

tried to jump start that didn't work. With a weak battery everything will still work. @Tom

It's a 2007. I called dealer they said 450.00 to replace battery is that normal

What should the voltage be on the battery?


You should be paying no more than $200. Voltage should be 12.3V, anything lower than 12 V and you need to replace.


Find an independent shop in your area for the battery and programming.


if it didn't start by jump starting, you might have something else going on.

If it's not battery then its starter for sure. If you push and nothing happens then its starter mostly.
