Hi Steve , tried starting my z4 all I had was a clicking noise from the engine, I thought the battery may be a bit flat so tried jump starting it no luck then everything died on me no lights on the dash or anything

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked..if you have zero electrical power in the car then this is a power delivery failure.common casues would be a bad battery cable/connection, melting at the fuse box or a failed battery unitPlease let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
