Re: Please help! Need to make a decision regarding my X5

You love the car and getting into anything close to what you have would probably cost more. I would keep it.

Just got the "High Battery Drain" message for the first time (2009 X5 30i). Let's see if it appears again. It may be time to replace the battery. It's just about 4.5 years old.

Re: Electrical System Malfunction!

Could this be related to a bad battery? Have you already ruled this out?

Re: Tailgate is not releasing

Not sure if this will fix your problem but l'd give it a try:
Open the lower part and close it hard. Sometimes if it is not shut properly it causes these issues.
Good luck.
