problem #2

  • miles


Shows the BMW logo then screen goes blank and keeps cycling the same way. The nav, radio, bluetooth, cd and the sos light error in the cluster. Safety alarks are all disabled and the vehicle is unable to detect or report if objects are near the bumper or sides of the vehicle. The unit stays running (maybe the fan) when I turn the car off and drains the battery.

2nd time this has occurred in pouring rain while driving. I have a rag top convertible BMW that when it is pouring rain..water somehow permeates the back of the car and "fries" the electrical components as I am driving.. the first time it happened it fried the onboard ccc at 48,000 miles, and all the components and now it has apparently compromised the replaced parts in the trunk area.. I looked it up and it there is "service bulletin" NHTSA id number: 10028770.. and I am sorry but I think this is a safety hazard when I am driving in the rain.. and all of sudden all of my electrical components start to fizzle out.. and the hazard lights are activated..
