Good day all!!

Well, I found out what the problem was... Some may believe this and others may not, but it was the battery... I bought the X5 with a weak battery... It would start fine and drive fine, but I noticed a few oddities with the electronics... The remotes, the fuel gauge... I had to let it sit for more than a few weeks and when we got back, the battery was totally dead... I jumped it and it charged, but I don't think it ever got back to 100%... I bought an Interstate battery for $153 and everything has been working great ever since...

I hope this experience helps!!

Cheers all!!
