The car won't start. You check the battery, but it seems fine. The next thing to check is the car's ignition system.

Inside the starter, you will find a drive gear and a flywheel. If the drive gear wears down, it starts having problems engaging the flywheel. The starter emits a grinding noise when this happens. You might get the car going after multiple tries, but the starter needs to be replaced soon. If the drive gear isn't engage the flywheel at all, all you will get is a whining noise. That's when the starter needs to be replaced immediately.

The solenoid sits between the battery and the starter. It allows electrical current to flow when you turn the key. It also engages the drive gear. If nothing happens when you turn the key, you may have a solenoid failure. Get the car to BMW of Visalia today for immediate service.
