    Hi guys,
    A friend of mine changed my crankshaft pulley but after doing so attempted to jump the car from the battery as he could not get leads to the front. Now it turns over but doesn’t start, the obd port appears to have some damage as I cannot get any reading from it and wondered if anyone could advise me on what to check first. I’ve heard jumping from the battery can damage the ecu or could it be something like the crankshaft sensor after the pulley has been changed?

    Changing the pulley won't affect the crank sensor. First thing would be to check for any blown fuses.

    What are you using to read from the obd port?

    I’ve checked the main fuse box and all is ok but yet to check the others so will do that when I’m home.
    Not entirely sure on his training he’s a guy I use to work with on the trains and seems to talk a good talk and offered to help me out. This was a while back now I kinda got sidetracked with some health issues not long after so just had it sat on the drive since, now I’m on the mend I wanna get it back on the road again. I couldn’t tell you what the tool was I tried using to read from the obd it was another friends shortly after this time and it didn’t even recognise being plugged in maybe a damaged pin or 2. Had nothing but issues with bmw’s but still can’t seem to stay away from them :LOL::LOL:

    Jump starting from the battery terminals shouldn't be a major problem.

    Are you sure the OBD port worked before and with the same reader. BMW's tend to quite fussy about which code readers they work with.

    Can you hear the fuel pump whirring? If it’s been sat for a while it could be a number of things.

    I’ve had a mechanic tell me he couldn’t get any readings aswell but I haven’t used him for a while because he started to become unreliable even turning down work I put his way

    The problem occurred before it had sat for a while

    Might sound daft but have you tried disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so to let everything reset.

    Did Alan Gunn's suggestion do any good??
    Otherwise, I suggest a BMW specialist - if you have one anywhere near you. There is of course the BMW dealer option too, but I would guess that will be rather pricey!!
