Well this is a hard one, a failed glow plug relay (in the Ebox on an e53) would cause a non start......

I've managed to get her to start🎉  she idles fine but as soon as you take it over 1000/1200 revs it cuts out and transfailsafe pops up on the dash ?????

So fault was coming up as crank sensor so changes that for a febi one still wouldn't start dead battery, charged battery took the recently changed camshaft sensor off and swapped with old one (I keep all old sensors for some strange reason) battery died again charged, car started and would idle normally bit as soon as you gave it any revs it died and got transfailsafe new battery was purchased. Had a gut feeling and took the old crank shaft sensor back with me and fitted it before trying the battery and boom works perfectly so gotta get a refund on the battery
