Already replaced the ignition switch. Found a decent BMW Mechanic and left it with him. I had some front end parts replaced recently and since ABS and brake lights were also on he said that may be the issue. Still don't understand how a battery that is staying charged by alternator could cause the problem. Then again, I didn't understand how my wife using lighted vanity mirror could shut off radio and make steering wheel go up and down! I will post findings when repairs complete. Thanks again for help.
