Mine used to do this too. Someone suggested not keeping the driver and passenger temp controls on the coldest setting. I set both to 72 and it stopped coming on by itself.

Welcome to the forum. This is a common problem. I just replaced mine last September at around 70k miles. It's less than $100 and maybe 20 minutes of your time. Super easy.

I had the same symptoms and it was indeed the wiring. I think two wires were severed, but many more were in poor shape. Kind of awkward to get in there and fix but not terribly difficult to do.

I used to autocross a lot in former cars - too much fun. Hoping to get the BMW out to a track day at Infineon or Laguna Seca this year. Hopefully Infineon since I already know that track well.

I had the same problem when I did my brakes. I ended up putting a 4x4 inch piece of lumber on the ground and slowly lowered the rotor down on that. The weight of the car made it pop right off.
