Uhmmm yeah...NO! When the IDrive just spins it means no power to the car radio modules.

The IDrive reboot would not work if you don't have any power. It is a soft re-boot. (Meaning software)

Does the car start? Gauges move on the dash? Any noise from the CD or DVD drives?

If the cars runs and gauges work, your CCC is probably good.
- Check fuses, there are post about where they are located on the board.
- Next check the car radio system with a scanner to see if there are faults.
- Last (if it were me) pull the center console, screen and under the glove box. Check for power to the modules. If I remember, the radio module is a part of the CD/DVD.
Be careful, the orange cables are fiber and break easily.

Good luck,
