Help! Is my 8 dead

7 posts in this topic

I took my 840ci brake calipers off to get them refurbed. It was sat for about 3 weeks.

I have now tried starting it and it turns over but will not fire. The OBC says tran fail safe mode which is concerning. Any ideas.

Batteries removed and trickle charged for 48 hrs and all is good.

If you can, leave it plugged into a decent charger (something like a Ctek) if you're not going to use it for more than a few days at a time. They help to recondition batteries as well as recharge.
