E32 M30 When hot starter will not turn
It's happened a couple of times now. When I drive for a few hours on the open road and stop, I go to start after a few minutes and I get ignition but it won't start. Just get a slight click sound from the under the bonnet. It seems to occur if I let it sit for a few minutes. If I stop and start again quickly, say a minute or two, so far it has not played up.
It will not crank at all, just a slight click under the bonnet. Not a loud click/clack that you get when the terminals are dirty. Let it cool a little for a few more minutes and keep trying finally it will turn and fires immediately.

as Timm already mentioned
The E32 has a pre-engaged starter. This means that when you turn the key a solenoid pulls the starter pinion into the flywheel gear, at the same time the solenoid connects power to the starter windings which spins the starter.
It sounds as if those contacts are worn and the power is not reaching the windings. The starter will need to be removed to either repair or replace the starter.......
trust Timm, he knows a lot

ask Andre in Germany
See one of the ads there, inside is the email address.
But if you ask such detailed question you should AT LEAST inform us the VIN or the production date = year and month. Otherwise it is just guesswork.
So I took a 735, U.K. spec. RHD, automatic transmission, built year
01/1990 as basis
ask him for
Position 03 Zuendanlassschalter von/from built year/month 1990/01 61321384843
If the real built year/month is different, check the ETK based on your VIN
But as the part only costs EURO 53.70, maybe it is cheaper to get it from the local BMW dealer, otherwise you have to pay shipping from Germany.Shogun E32 Tech Tips: http://twrite.org/shogunnew/topmenu.html
