E61 totally dead

Recommended Posts

I have an E61 that has totally died. The remote locking failed, on the day I was taking it for its mother. It failed on rear brake senor missing, and airbag light on. I got hold of a laptop with BMW software and tried to diagnose and update the car. It seamed to be working fine for about 45 min, then something happened and whole car is now dead, the only things working are the rear windows and interior lights. Any ideas other than a small accident with petrol and matches?

Have you checked the life of the battery? 


I'm thinking that too.  A knackered battery can play havoc with all sorts of electrical components.


Whip it out and try one that you know is o.k. to at least rule out a duff battery.
