    2006 X3 No Spark

    2006 BMW X3 3.0. 205k miles

    Car turns over but won't start.

    Hit a deer a few weeks back. Small deer, little damage. Was able to drive the car home. Next morning when I started it I noticed leaking coolant. Coolant reservoir had a small crack and was leaking. Never overheated. Car sat for a week waiting for the part. Swapped it and now the car won't start.

    I'm getting fuel at the rail and can hear the pump. I pulled the plugs and checked for spark. Nothing there. Coils are a couple years old. Checked all fuses, they are good. Battery is less than a year old and has been on a charger.

    No OBD codes.

    Used an Autophix 7810 (BMW specific reader) and got the following:
    ECM Engine Control module:
    2800 No message (inst. cl. 2) from Instrument cluster
    2809 No message (inst. cl. 3) from Instrument cluster

    EWS Elec. Immobilize System:
    0F power on reset

    ABS/ACS/DSC Dynamic Stabilty:
    5EB1 Steering-angle sensor, supply
    D35A No message (instrument cluster 615)

    ZKE Central Body Electronic:
    07 Anti-theft alarm systems: siren, radio interior protection, tilt alarm sensor or wire STDWA short circuit to ground or open circuit
    30 K-bus or Control unit for instrument cluster basis (Gateway)

    Not sure what is going on here but obviously the instrument cluster is having trouble. Not sure if the Anti-theft system errors could be causing this either. Car ran great before this issue but never ran the codes previously so not sure if these have been there or not.

    Any insight?

    Edited the first post. Car does turn over, just won't start. Plugs smelled like fuel as well when I pulled them so I know they are getting fuel.

    Is it possible that either the crank or cam sensor was damaged in the impact? That could potentially prevent ignition
