Hi, I have an 86 524td and it won't start. The battery is only 2 yrs old, all accessories and the lights don't dim when turned on. When ignition is turned to glow warmup I think I hear it engage/turn on, I get the green glow light but nothing happens when I try to start; except the normal idiot lights come on. no starter sound, click, nothing. Tried charging just in case still nothing. Anyone have any ideas on what the problem is? The car has had previous problems with starting from the previous owner (had new starter installed, fuel pump ect...) It was a little hard to start to begin with, the longer you let it sit with the green glow start light on the easier it was to start (just for 30 seconds or so as opposed to trying to start as soon as green came on)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Jeff
