Went to start my 2017 M3W and no tick-tick-tick when turning the key. Fuse is fine, and tried the inertia switch, but no-go. Somewhat surprised at the failure scenario - thought in general they were dying while running, not at cold start. Any ideas of anything else it should check?

Else, I suppose I'm going to have a chat with the dealer on Monday and get them to schedule a replacement...

Was planning on the Distinguished Gentleman's ride at the end of this month, but that's looking less likely now unfortunately!

If the roll over switch behind the RH side of the oil tank is OK try checking the power to the pump at the plug under the pump cover on the top of the RH fuel tank. If that is good then the pump is suspect. If no power at the plug try transposing the relays, I think the pump one is the same as 2 or 3 others. If it is the pump then this may be helpful:

Only took me about 45 minutes to replace the fuel pump and had the Wally (Walbro) pump overnighted, no need to get a dealer involved with associated cost, etc.

I spoke w/ the dealer this week, and as I'm still under warranty for a few more months, they are ordering me a new pump. When that one fails, which it almost certainly seems likely to at some point, I'll go the replacement route nicely documented by Ian Brett & Andrew Warren. They'll ship it over to me and let me install it, which is very helpful as it saves me a fair bit of travel time both ways!

Timing stinks as I was planning on doing the DGR this Sunday! But I guess it's better that it died in my garage than in the middle of Philadelphia...
