Was just going out to Taunton with my mum & Chilli won't Start Sad Mad

I turn the key & my passenger window gudders down & my airbag light comes on, then she comes on with how she normally does but no enguine. Also a beep can be heard!!

Tried a few times & nothing

Dooesnt look like anything was left on overnight

Flat battery or anything more serious scratch

Have left here @ home till we get back, then will see if I can jump start or need to crisen my breakdown

Any ideas/help guys please

I knew this would happen pottering round town & my bro not being around Sad

Thanks Hug

A very Sad Mad chilli owner

Oh Dawn sorry to hear this wish I was more mechanically minded and be able to help, when this happened on my old MGB I used to hit the starter motor with a hammer but don't think that will work.

I'm sure the fantastic guys on here will have some constructive ideas for you. fingers crossed that Chilli starts soon xxx

anymore warning lights coming on or just airbag?

Is the beep definately related and not just the temperature warning beep?

Unfortunately I don't have any ideas here Sad I hope you manage to get chilli fixed soon though!

Might be worth taking out AA or RAC cover which includes breakdowns at home? (Some only cover you more than a mile away from your house). Not too sure they would come out to a car right after signing up though!

I think the AA does come out straight away??? I believe?? I am sure that my brother has used it that way or my dad??

Again I am not technically minded so no help here! I would have thought the battery if it had happened to me.

Is it a beep or like a clicking? Could be a relay? Or maybe Imobilisor not cutting off. Definately sounds electrical though!

Job to understand without seeing Dawn......

This could very well be low battery power, certain things may work but may not be enough power for starting, I think without the correct level it will just click, which someone said is the relay.

How old is the battery? Short journeys in cold dark weather certainly gives the battery a hammering, heaters, lights etc all on.

Really hope it's a simple thing like above Dawn and Chilli is purring again soon.

Going to crisen my greenflag cover as we have looked at the obvious & no go. Sounds like the starter motor/relay but will wait & see.

Only prob going to b late for work but have let them know

She was fine last night scratch

They will tow her if they can't get her started Sad

Knew this would happen know my bro is not around Sad

Will see what they say but am skint & not getting paid cause the he'll hole are delaying my p45 Mad

Let's hope they can fix her

Sounds like the battery to me Dawn! How old is the battery? They can go down hill rapidly after four years or more esp in a very cold season and not being run far very often!

Yeh was batterry so nothing major fingers crossed jumped started her & went first time. Was prob a wasted call out but wasn't sure if it was the battery.

Yeh it's orig we think or second so it's obviously wearing out & have been doing short journeys & it's cold & damp.

Thought this may happen so got to be careful & get a new one if it persists

So she was just protesting Laughing

Thanks for your help Hug

Good to hear nothing major Dawn! But you will have to either get your battery tested to see if it will be ok to charge up and use or get a new one! Otherwise this will most certainly happen again! Probably tomorrow! Laughing

It sounds like more long runs are in order then, to keep the battery topped up. Obviously a few trips back to Surrey to visit us would help Wink

Good to hear Dawn, thought it most proberly would be the battery Smile

If it's let you down Dawn get a new one, for the cost and the job they do it's little money Smile

Worth a shop round to compare prices Wink

Thought when I read your first post it was the battery, you most certainly will probably need a new battery when that happens. £100 ish from bmw.

I think the "S" needs about 60amps scratch

Halfords would be about £70, not sure what autofactors are that way or there are some on line dealers that include delivery.

Will just have to see if she starts 2morrow & take from there. Were do u think is best guys - Halfords scratch as would need fitting!!! Weston super mare is our next town but bridgewater or Taunton are not to far.

It's chucking it down know & just got in so can't b bothered to try again & don't want to
flatten what's left from earlier.

If not I will have to chat up our builders son as he works in a garage or sort something out

Yeh I thought it was the battery but dad & our builder thought it was the starter motor & advised to ring greenflag. Should have gone with insticts

Thanks for the advice guys Hug

IF it is the battery i would avoid halfrauds and find a local motorfactors, will prob be cheaper, a better battery and im sure they wouldnt mind spending 5 minutes to fit it for you rather than paying a silly amount for a halfrauds monkey to do it Smile
