Ive been away for 9 months and returned a few days back. I tried to start my BMW 1 series 2007 118D and it wouldn't start.
The car was completely dead as the fob wouldn't do a thing, so I tried to jump start it from the jump points under the hood. The dash all lights up, radio comes on fine, lights, etc. but the ignition dies when I press the start button.
I'm presuming the battery is stone cold dead. I tried to keep it on the jump start from the other car for over half an hour but it doesn't seem to be getting much better (charged). Will a standard trickle battery charger be OK with an e87?
