I've been looking around and I cant find anything on this. When I bought my '96 328i the aftermarket alarm on it had been disabled by someone else by cutting wires, I wish I had know that before hand. Ever since I bought it I have had problems with my car not starting once in a while it gets real old. I have traced the problem down to the fuel pump not kicking on and there is no spark. Does anyone know what could be down to solve or even what is causing these problems? I just replaced the fuel filter 2 days ago also.
When I run direct power to the pump it runs but fuel still doesnt not make it to the fuel rail. It turns over but doesnt even try to start.
This is something that happens often and I cant figure it out. Ive heard it could be a immobiliser but I have no clue where that is or how to bypass that. The factory alarm is gone and I have no remotes. I would really appriciate someone helping me figure out the problem.
