Hi Guys - In case anyone is online, my buddy's 2002 MY M5 just quit on the freeway. Unfortunately he is 1/2 way between SFO and Los Angeles.

He checked gas and it seems the pump is working and priming. Car cranks fine, battery seems healthy but it won't start.

Any ideas / thoughts / suggestions / to get this thing running?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, my buddy has no tools, no wires or anything on him. Seems he is stuck in a semi remote location too. Seems it will be a job for AAA

Well that sucks. Possibly the fuel pump. Sounds like he needs to get a tow.:(

If he confirmed the fuel pump is working he should check for spark, but if he has no tools he won't be able to remove a coil.

Tell your buddy the M5 has a tool tray in the trunk and next time to make sure it is checked to make sure he has the necessary tools in it.
