I had the same problem. Had to have the idrive controller replaced. Would have been abt $800 or so at the dealer, but my ext warranty covered it.

Bad news

That quote seems high even for a dealer. I think my dealer quoted around $750 or $800, iirc. That was about 1.5 years ago though. Id find a good indy.
