Mein Auto: 2008 BMW X5
Need some expert help

Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forumn, but find it so amazing to problem solve issues before getting taken by the dealership.

I got home from a trip and my bmw X5 was sitting in the driveway. The following is what is happening - not sure if there is an easy fix:

a) Key Fobs don't work - neither my own or my wife's. Valet key works - so does the internal locking system
b) Parking Brake Malfunction is illuminated
c) Back-up camera does not display - but park assist does

Not sure what is going on - any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Franco

Hard to diagnose from a keyboard and without more details, but my prime suspect would be the battery or charging system. Modern BMW's will display all sorts of erroneous messages when a battery is near the end of its useful life.

I am sure you know what this means, but it isnt clear to us.

Did you go on your trip with your X5? What happened between th trip and sitting in the driveway?

Or does this mean "I didnt drive my car, it just sat in the driveway for XXX dys"?

Does the car start?

If the battery is dead, or the charge got very low, the modules may have not had adeuate power and may be in an error state....
