Hello to the (BMW) world out there. Thaks to everybody for the help with my power steering issue. Unfortunately I have not been able to work on due to another problem that appered from nowhere. Last friday I went to pull the car from the garage. I had extreme difficulty getting it started. It would turn over but just not fire up. After about 10 to 15 mins. of almost constant (I know not smart but was rather miffed) cranking it finally started. Once going ther was no stumbling, hesitation and so on. she ran fine. I drove around for 30-40 mins to help recharge the battery. Got back and shut it off. About 5 mins later went to start and had no issues. fired right up. Finished work in the garage after about 2 hours, went to move the car, no start. I checked voltage at the battery(connected and dis-connected) fine. There is no power to the interior, windows, mirrors, H-vac and the alt. abs warning lights with the key and ignition in run position. I installed a new ignition switch and still no change. other than the voltage test for starter and selonoid( no extra hands) I have tried the tests listed in the bently manual with no luck. I am looking for any ideas on where else to look when I do test the starter.
