Hello, this is my first time using this site. I have a question regarding my 2004 545i. I disconnected the negative battery cable in an effort to clear some fault codes. Once I reconnected the battery and started the car, the Idrive indicated an electrical malfunction message. It stated to immediately stop the car and take to dealership. Some other symptons included the windshield wipers constantly staying on, abs light on,windows and door locks will not work, the rpm guage does not work, and the ac will not work but the blower motor does work. I assume the problem is minor because everything worked properly prior to the battery being disconnected.

Any possible helpful solutions will be greatly appreciated.

Did you check fuses? Sounds like a likely culprit.
