BMW troubles

BMW 530xi 2006 is not srtarting

Hey scotty,

My girlfriends bmw is acting up and when we turn the key it just makes a click. We think it is the alternator but when we took it out no auto parts could test it. The battery reads out to 11.67 volts. the car wont start off just the battery so i cant see if the alternator is supplying power. What do you think is wrong?

From,

zac

try to jump start it and replace the starter if that doesn't work

11.67 Volts is almost a dead battery for a modern BMW.

Check the starter motor (if applicable) tap it whilst trying to start, it free's up the solenoid.
