Weird iDrive fault

Recommended Posts

Started my 530d up tonight after it had been stood for a week

 

Usual dynamic drive failure which reset itself

 

iDrive screen image though was upside down?

 

Has anybody else experienced this?

You can reboot iDrive without having to shut the car down and wait. Just push both eject buttons (DVD and CD) and the volume knob (a.k.a the mute button) at the same time.

 

maybe??

Can but try, Could take the unit out and disconnect it. Probably easier to do the battery though.

reprogramming -> No solution
new MASK unit -> No solution
new screen -> problem solved.

Car is completely standard apart from remap so nothing extra added

 

It`s a 2004 model so it is quite basic as to what is controlled by the idrive

 

Looking around the net this is a rare fault and it seems that the dealers know nothing about it

 

I will try my local dealer tomorrow, need to get it fixed before I sell the car

 

Function is perfectly normal but just inverted
