Figure out whether the car has an alarm system. Aftermarket or original. It may have freaked out.
i am having the same problem and i have replaced the battery and no luck now i am blowning the battery fuse and have a short somewhere
I may be having the same problem. I replaced the battery. The interior lights, siren, horn, radio all work, but the car will not turn-over when the ignition is turned. I am really interested in how to unlock the vehicle.
I dont have an answer but I am having the same problem. My car wouldn't start but when I turned the key, the lights (hazard and dash lights) started blinking. I think it's a warning that the battery is not completely connected. We tightened the clamps (which were very loose) and it stopped.
I have a 2000 Malibu and I am having the same problem. There is an electrical problem. I have yet to figure out how to solve it, but turning on the AC blows the fuse. Ive had the instrument cluster replaced, so dont go and do that, because your car will still do the same thing. Your BCM (Body Control Module) may need to be replaced, or it is just a bad wiring. If you have replaced your battery, that may be a part of the problem. I know this information is not much, but hopefully it will help. I have a 2000 Malibu and I am having the same problem.

I had this problem and had the oil pressure checked, which was fine,and the sensor replaced..a few days later it came on again. Found out i had a bad battery. I bought a new battery today and so far no blinking oil can! I have read about other folks having the same problem with a bad battery.
i think you are having problem with your alternator its not charging your battery
My epc light came on because of battery failure. My battery was acting funny and barely starting the car. I went to autozone and had them check my battery which ended up having a bad cell. I replaced the battery and the car easily started up. After the car started the light never came back on.
had the same problem it was just the fuse
It is important to pay attention to the warning lights on the dashboard. The Battery warning light turns on when there the battery of a car is having a problem.
I disagree. I was having issues with my heater taking a long time to heat up. I had to have my battery replaced and my heater functioned normally after that.
I needed a battery when I was having the same problem.
sounds like the battery is worn out when the engine is hot it takes more battery to start
Try having battery charged It may have been discharged to the point that it will not accept a charge and willhave to be replaced After having battery charged check the alternator with a voltmeter - should read approx. 12.8 without engine running and 13.8-14.2 with engine running
It means you are having a problem with the charging system. Have the alternator and battery checked. Good Luck!!!
I was having the same problem with my daughter's escort. I replaced the cam position sensor and the problem stopped. Advanced Auto Parts will check the computer to find out the problem for free.

"was having charging system problem so alternator was replaced now car keeps flooding and won`t fire.
Yes. Having more than needed isn't a problem, as long as the battery will fit the car.
I'm having the same problem. The cause of the nackered battery and dead alternator could be a faulty charge relay. Try replacing this and see if the light goes out..
You need to check if the ALTERNATOR is giving the correct output so as to charge the battery. By having a volt meter across the batery terminals one can then rev the engine and the voltage accross the battery should be about 13.8 volt indicating that the Alternator is charging the battery. If this 12 volt bateery voltage does not increase, this indicates a charging problem (mostly with the alternator either the brushes or one of the diodes in the alternator).
The problem could be a number of things. One is that the new battery you installed is faulty and you would need a new battery. i would have a professional check your battery, starting and charging components on your car and make sure they are within spec. If they are all good then I would check for a battery draw on the car. This can be an extremely difficult and expensive problem to find; Suggest having certified BMW service done at this point. Make sure you have all aftermarket electrical stuff disconnected: no aftermarket radio, buzz detectors, nothing, not even anything in your cigarette lighter.
maybee your battery is low The battery wouldn't matter there, the starter is having a problem
There is website called e-how where you can type up the problem you are having with your Bluetooth headset devise and you can find ways in how to troubleshoot it and hopefully remedy your problem. One of the very first things you are advised to do is to read your owner's manual and check your battery, which may need to be replaced.
More than Likely you left something on. Or your battery is just old. I've had this previous problem with my 2004 ford explorer, it worked great, started right up then we left it over night then went out there the next morning and it wouldn't start everytime we would turn the key it would click. Then we took the cables off of the battery and the alram started going off. We ended up having to buy a new battery
This particular battery is advertised as being very long-lived. If you are having problems getting it to hold a charge, it may be faulty and need to be replaced.
