Have you checked electrical connections? Battery terminals and ground connections?
The fact that your lights where flickering sounds like an electrical fault and the fault codes might be caused by this. Lose connections can cause alot of heat, this might explain why the rest allowed it to start again.
Where did you get the fault codes from?

sounds like all these codes all emissions (air, misfires) related, did you have any of the air intake hoses or tubes come loose?
also what did you use to generate these codes?

Please help us our 2001 325i won't start but all the bells and wistles are on. The battery is new and the terminals are good. Is there a reset for the starter? Please help us.

The car does not even turn over...is there a security on my key or maybe the neutral switch or something like that? (car is an automatic)

Could be the security system, the question is what happened between it working and not working? Just a dead battery or something else? How do you know the battery is good? (new, been tested with some kind of capacitance tester, etc.)
