Mein Auto: 325CI 2004
BMW 325CI 2004 E46 Blinkers have a delayed response / Navigation screen is white now

Navigation screen is white and unresponsive and then the blinkers have a delay in them with the hazards. The dash is weird with the electronics and it will also say my seat belt is not on even while it is.

Went to BMW didn't let them diagnose it but the guy said it might be the General body module, and then proceeded to tell me it'll be around $1,400 to fix which is ridiculous for the overall cost of my car.

Looking for help on what the issue would be, and how to resolve it as quickly as possible.

I have been reading a lot of people say that "DENSION ICE" aux turns the electrical system down. I installed an aux kit but not Dension iCE, and it has been fine for a year. It was installed right into the aux port in the back of the navigation screen in my 2004 325CI and ran behind it. My aux wire is legit though, ordered from turner motorsport, and shouldn't have anything to do with this.

Also, the blinkers do work sometimes - lately they have been working..

But when it first all happened, blinkers went weird, hazards went weird, (Delay in response, sometimes don't turn off) -- still occurs sometimes at random
Seatbelt will show up even when I have it on, and also the dash will say door is open after I have closed it.

I know it sounds too simple, but have you checked your battery?
