Car does not start but everything else works?

I tried starting my car right now but the engine does not even make an attempt to start. Comfort Access works perfectly and the radio turns on but nothing else. I called roadside assistance and they are coming to give me a jump, but I don't think the battery is dead since all the electronics work. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Tried doing a search but got nothing. Thanks in advance.

The same thing just happened to me. Tried to jump start it and did nothing. It's like the starter is bad. Didn't have time to call roadside, so let me know what you find out.

Got a call from my SA and he said it was a bad connection and the battery is not holding a charge. Makes sense but not on a new car...

Had the same problem till recently my car nearly stalled. It starts fine when the engine is cool but when the engine is cool but when I drive it and try to restart it, nothing happens. no clicking no noise nothing, just sits there. It shows the transmition warning signal. When it cools it starts fine. Bmw replaced the relay switch, did not work. Well I broke down last week( nearly stalled and my cylinders were blow) also the spark plugs were bad. changed all six and the spark plugs. Works perfect now.
