2002 325ci starter issue?
My son's '02 325ci has been acting strangely lately. Symptoms are as follows:
After doing some research, I have narrowed things down to a bad starter or starter solenoid. I understand that to changes these out is a difficult DIY project. Any suggestions as to other possibilities? I did purchase a new battery just in case. Does anything in the above list of symptoms indicate that a new battery would help? Thanks!
Interior lights and radio don't really mean squat, they use very low amounts of power. Clicking while trying to start indicates low battery, generally not bad starter (that would be one loud clack with no engine movement).
New battery IS a good idea, also get the alternator checked. I'm not sure when the IBS made it's way onto the three's, but if equipped it could be getting dodgy (part of neg. battery cable).
