    Press Start and I just hear a click....

    Hello everyone.
    2008 M3 Sedan. Went out this morning to a non starting car, I insert key fob, lights and radio in car all come on normal (so battery is fine?) But when I press the start button I hear a click, and thats it. Any ideas on things I should be looking at / trying? or should I flat bed to dealership?

    How old is the battery, I bet the battery is toast, the click is the little bit of voltage trying to engage the starter

    If it jump starts, it’s ground or battery. I know you replaced both. I’d test the battery voltage and if it’s good try starting with the jumper cables as an extra ground path from block to body.
