Take it to the Dealer down here. Find out what is. You can then call BMWNA to see if they will maybe do a goodwill case for you if it is major.

Don't worry then. Remember, you are probably only getting $800.00 worth of repairs when they say $4K. As long as they fix it, you are fine.

What steps would you take as a Master Technician if you were still with BMW for this issue? Is there something you don't have access to? Uplug the ESS and try starting it. Crank is strong?
