I own a 1996 840Ci
Recently when going to start the vehicle, it seems it has a flat battery and unable to start.
Having replaced the two batteries, the same problem exists after being able to start the car once and then after shutting off the car, locking it, re-entering and going to restart its dead again as if it has a flat battery.
To resolve the issue, i disconnect the negative terminals to both batteries, leave for approx 10 mins and then reconnect the negative battery terminals… The vehicle then starts straight the way with absolutely no issue at all..
If i repeat the above the same continues to happen… Could you steer me towards why this is happening and whats needed to resolve this..??
