Help with idrive
Today i took my car in for a wash and detail (07 750li) and when i left my screen wasnt on. We finally got the screen to come on but i have no navigation, no radio, cd, no sound including the parking sensors, seatbelt chime, etc. Certain items are greyed out. They claim all they did was shampoo the carpets and that couldnt have caused the problem. My question is, is it possible something may have gotten wet? Could they have messed up my amp which might be causing problems? It was all good just a week ago lol... But seriously any help would be much appreciated...thanks

its a common problem with these cars

usually happens when people have their windows tinted

the water drips down to the left side of the trunk... where a bunch of electronics are located.

check there for dampness

ok thanks Seven, ill check that out.

Just an educated guess, but it would sound like a unit in your fiber optic loop is no longer working. Try a MOST BUS reset

my mechanic just did a full reset on the car and nothing changed, so he's gonna have to dig deeper. Ill keep ya posted....

This seems to be a common issue.. your the second person in a week who has had their idrive system killed by a detail.. others by window tinting.. these places are putting too much water in everything evidently..

They "shampooed" your trunk carpet and everything else in the trunk;) lol
I don't get it how those "detailers" are so "smart", telling that they didn't do anything. I mean bmw always has all electronics (at least last 20yrs) in the trunk and actually no car will benefit from "shampooing", so wtf they still haven't learned anything????

Bypass voice module (they killed mine) first bc it's closest, than bypass everything in the trunk one by one.
Also check fuses in the right side trunk.

Ok cool i'll have him check in that order...

I'm having an iDrive problem also...although it just happened and not related to trunk washing. LOL!

Mine fluctuates between the grey BMW screen and then the "accept" screen, but it won't allow me to accept. The system will let me scroll/highlight accept, but doesn't recognize when i push the control down. I haven't tried unplugging anything, but the can't be too difficult, right? BTW, what is an ASK? YIKES....this car is just so damn expensive sometimes!!! Drives me NUTS! But I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
