Comfort Access Door Handles. Need help.
Got a sad story. I'm 300 miles from home and my '05 745 needs a jump start every 3rd or 4th start. Went to the local dealer who put in a $1200 alternator, but also identified door handle faults. Battery is less than 6 months old. I'll need to order the door handles when I get back home. Seems car is having trouble sleeping (me too.)
I've started to switch the battery off with the trunk switch, and I pulled the fuse from the "Passive Access" on the fuse panel. Any other thoughts on how to keep the battery from draining? Also, anybody know the price on door handles?
This might be the last straw. I had dreams of keeping the beast until 200K miles, it's got 70K now. The 7's unreliability is all fun and games when the dealer is 10 miles away, but when you're on the road it gets serious. It's also fun to be the guy with the big BMW waving jumper cables in the parking lot.
