How old are your ignition wires? Moisture usually gets into the ignition wires causing a poor spark or rough idle. If the wires are very bad your car will crank but not start at all. : Sometimes I wash my '94 525ia in the evening. The next morning the car will idle like crap for a couple minutes. Obviously humidity or condensation is causing something to get wet.

: Anyone have a clue what the actual problem is? No codes are getting set. I'm not washing the motor. The car is garaged FWIW.

: TIA!
