Hello just got a brand new 330e —— struggling to get it to start.....foot on brake and pushing start button—-get a ‘bing’ noise from the console?
+1 - sounds like 330e is starting to me. By pressing the accelerator and brake at the same time you will be asking the car for immediate power, therefore forcing the internal combustion engine to start. Just starting it in the normal way won't necessarily start the engine unless it's really cold or the high voltage battery is flat.Are you sure it’s not just starting in electric mode, and the bing means it’s ready to drive? What happens if you put it in D and apply throttle after the bing?
Hope the OP comes back here.
Starting procedure is close door, foot on footbrake, press start ( with keys in cabin ) - goes into ready mode - no bing.Hope the OP comes back here.
