2004 545i not starting

My '04 545i runs great, when it runs. Every month or so, it chooses to not start. Foot on brake, key in ignition, all electrical works, but the car will not even click to turn over. We have checked the battery, alternator, starter, ignition, anything the dealership's computer should pick up.

Wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if they have ideas? The dealer has suggested a new key. Another BMW owner has suggested a new Body Chassis Control Module.

Frustrated as the car has been in the dealer more than in my garage!

If the dealer can't diagnose this car, you need to find a new dealer.
