Yep, I had the same problem couple of weeks ago. Nothing happens when trying to start. The lights seemed to be normal, but the reason was dead battery.

Battery usually lasts around 4-5 years and its not expensive to replaace. Bring it to batteryshop, they will test it for you.

Hannu. 535iA -90

I tried to dtart my car this AM, but it won't turn over. I can't even hear the starter engage. I can still turn on the lights and they look pretty much norlam brightness.

I can also hear a click from a relay under the dash and see the dash lights dim slightly when I try to engage the starter.

I'm not sure if my battery is dead or if my starter/soleniod is not working.

Anyone been through this??
