e60 iDrive flickering.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Today I pulled in to fill up the tank and when I started the car after doing so, the iDrive screen flashed on and off with lines through it and made a sort of re-boot sound. This continued on a loop the entire 15 minute drive home with nothing working (radio,cd,aux) just the screen remaining black with the intermittent flash of the idrive screen before going back to black. I've gone back out to the car after it being off for about an hour and started it up and it's working perfectly again. This has never happened before. Any idea what the culprit could be?

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds expensive to replace, any ideas on how to determine if that indeed is the problem and how much roughly I should be paying for a new unit if so?

Thanks.

New units are no longer available. At one point BMW offered reconditioned units, but I understand that they are no longer available either. A call to your BMW dealer would confirm. If so then the only option is to get it repaired by an electronics specialist. At one point there were a few people offering repairs on ebay, probably still are. One option is revtronic

https://www.revtronic.com/  which is the more expensive option.

Thanks a lot for the info. I'll get BMW to look at it and go from there. I've found a site on Google that repair your CCC once you send it to them and they post it back and it only costs 250 or so which isn't too bad.
