Im hoping someone can help me as my car is out of action still, i have been using the BMW to get to work. I pulled up to traffic lights on route this morning and the car stalled, i had no electrics what so ever, no dash lights, no hazard lights, but the car made a strange almost silent beepy alarm noise (sorry thats the best way i can explain it) every time i tried to turn the key, apart from that there was still nothing, is this an immobilizer thats kicked in? or something else. The car will start once its jumped started and the car is running but as soon as the ignition is turned off, theres nothing again exept for the beepy noise when trying to get it to start.

cheapest fix is take it to the scrapyard

BMW will charge you more than the carĀ“s worth to get a radio code :baby:

Can any other BMW drivers shed some light on what it might be?

Id really appreciate any help or advice thats given, well other than the scrap it comments and get an escort as i already have one of those and thats not working either, lol.

I really dont have any luck.

I really hope Sittingbourne gets bombed as soon as i get home and blows up all the unhelpfull people that didnt help me this morning, ar$eholes.

That isnt really helping since my car is out of action., most people would just stop and stare well i know from experience thats all they do when the escort blew up.

in all honesty, I would of course stop if it was ANYONE I knew or if it was anyone who looked particularly struggling or in a sticky spot

otherwise, as 99.9% of people, I wouldn't stop
