How Long Does The Battery Last In A BMW?
Damn, stalled out my car parking and went to restart it, it cranked once and died. Can't friggin believe the car won't start when I'm parked half way on the street with my front sticking out. It needs to crank like 6 times before it fires up, I only had enough juice for like 4 cranks before it fizzed out. Someone gave me a jump and I was on my way. You'd think the battery would give you some kind of warning before yakking on you suddenly. Is this typical of an old battery or is there something else wrong? How long does a battery typically last? Also, where the heck is the battery in my 94 3.25? Is in on the right near the bumper or on the right near the rear seats?
