Sounds like you could have a loose or bad fiber optic cable. If you remove the glove box, you will have access to the connection to the I-Drive components. You can press both eject buttons on the CD, DVD, & radio power/volume button at the same time, to reboot the I-Drive.

Good Luck!

Check the nav DVD. Mine did that with a bootleg copy of newer maps I got on eBay. I went back to original DVD and never a problem since.

Sorry to hear that. Have you taken it to your dealer for a quote? Doesn't hurt to shop around to see if someone can fix it.

Don't even think of going to the dealer for this. It will cost you a fortune in labor and new parts. Easily $1500-$2K. They only use new parts. Very little chance it is as simple as a loose connector, but you can always pull it out and see if everything is tight.

You can find used CCCs (the radio/nav/iDrive system) with display on eBay for $450-$600. I sold mine for $650 with the BT module. You can try the display only first to see if that's the issue. There are only 2 screws holding it in.

If that's not it then replacing the CCC is easy but the car will most likely need too be coded for it to work.

Thanks Rosen! No way would I take it to the dealer. No way! I found a local indy that quoted me $945 for parts and labor. I did actually watch YouTube video on how to remove the ccc. Looks really simple. I may just go that route. But, I do have a email into Mike and BPM Sport. Just waiting on him to see what he has in store for me. I did replace the batt with a fresh one. The first couple of times I started it up the idrive worked fine and I was so elated! But the next morning.....same old thing. So yes, I do really think the ccc is out.

Really I would love to do the cic upgrade, but not sure if the investment is worth it. My ride has 120k on it. The cic upgrade looks sweet! I do plan on keeping this car for at least 2 to 3 more years. More if it keeps running well. I love it.

the upgrade is great but I would not invest in it with 120k.

The CCC install is silly simple as you will see. The programing is the only issue and Benvo or others should be able to get you going for a minimal fee. Good luck.

Yes it can be done remotely. Make sure you budget first. There are lots of details to consider.

In addition to the CIC and new display, you really need the Combox too. Depending on the version of firmware in the CIC you get you may need a firmware upgrade for it too.

In my case I also needed a firmware update for my amp.

You'll need a current map program and an emulator for it to work. If you have SAT radio HD radio, and other options like a CD changer things will change. There are domestic versions and european versions. If possible you want a US version, but they are not always available.

You will also need a new front bezel and more. See the BMWCODING.COM for more info and also the M6 section of the M5 board. On thhe M6 board and search for CIC posts from ZEROCKS1, and one specifically from MIMI74 that has a lot of great information.

It's a lot of work and $$$ but totally worth it.

Do the homework and I'm sure you'll have manny more questions.
