I bought an 03 325xi a month ago. I didn't drive it over the weekend I got in it on Monday to find it won't start. All the accessories work ( lights radio etc) but the engine won't start. I tried to start it for about 5 minutes waited 10 min then tried again. Anyone have this problem before or have any ideas?

Does the engine turn over ok?
If it does, check you MAF sensor to see if the little "steel plate" inside it is intakt.
And measure your battery (Volts)
It could be other thinks, but these two are easy checks.

I replaced the battery. The car still wouldn't start so I took it to a shop and they replaced the starter and now it works fine.
