Mein Auto: 2005 X3 3.0i
Angry My 2005 X3 3.0i is HUNTED

My X3 has started doing strange things. First, the battery would drain and the car wouldn't start. After replacing the battery, the panel control lights stated to come on. Which caused things to stop working, i.e Navigation system, radio, wipers, cruse control, horn and passenger side-view mirror. Everything else functions normally. Is there a simple fix for my issue or do I have to call in the Ghostbusters?

Mein Auto:
Greeting,

Ditto! I'm a month in on a used purchase (1 owner) and I feel the same way.

Instead of preparing for my finals, I'm sitting in the lounge of a BMW dealership stressed out by the flicker of the battery light and not knowing when the car will shutdown...the experience of being towed twice is not fun.

Sorry to hear that! I took mine to the dealership and when they were finished checking it out, the repairs where more than the price of the car!!! I drove it 3 blocks down to a car lot and traded it in for a 2011 Caddy!! I loved my car (when it ran well) but I won't let BMW break me financially. Good luck with your car.
