did you check the fuses?.

i have somewhat similar electric problems with my AC. Some days when it's very moist and there's lots of condensation it does not turn on. I feel it must be condensation short circuiting something

Thank you very much for your input boys,
I, went to the vehicle this morning and found everything to be as it should be very strange I thought, rang local BMW agent but did not get any real reason why this could have happened as I am taking vehicle in next Monday for the OBDII port updating I shall get them to check it out once again thanks for your advice.

Hi,
Just thought Id let you know the progress regarding (LOSS OF ELECTRICS-E89),
I have just had said vehicle returned from STRATSTONE BMW LEEDS WEST YORKSHIRE UK.
I took it in to be checked over which they did finding 19 faults in the onboard memory,dont ask what they were because they seem very reluctant to tell me,
the service advisor promised to send me a full print out Im not holding my breath, On the bright side while they had the vehicle they performed the security upgrade to
the OBDII port now if they want to steal it they will need a key,
Regards,

Hi you should push for a reply and see the fault codes, this will make a real difference if you have any issues into the future, plus any information passed on will helps others. The dealers are holding way to much secret details when it comes to these cars nowadays, Whilst i sold my Z4 after 6 months ownership, my brother still has his, so I keep a watching eye in case of any problems
Ps all BMW's hate to be laid up for long periods of time, especially if you are not putting a tender on the battery during the period, I had a 6 Series also and when it comes to electronic issues due to battery condition almost unbelievable !!

Hi. (645/333)
I,really understand your logic in your comment! but it a'int as easy as that, the job it went in for(2HRS!) turned out to be 60hrs,
its going back in on Friday(21st Dec) reason? the folding roof is opening continuously (it a'int) but obviously the guy doing the job (which I can understand must be extremely Bbbbboring!) must have taken his eye off the ball for a nanosecond the saga continues I shall keep you informed.

Hi! There is no fun when this happens, I always understood that the hard top had very few kinks in its design and operation!
