7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

No Crank no start

Basically doesn't Crank or start when I push the button it makes a faint click . All lights light up ... RND are flashing and says "transmission fault drive moderately " I just got a new battery and it was working fine 2 days ago.... also I read it can be the (IVM module ). I remember a couple days back it was cutting off on me and sometimes I would wait until I have to start it again ... so can I be possible that unit died ? Please only answer if you have had this problem

My 05 745li was doing similar foolishness that you posted. Intermittent starts. Push button and no crank or start until about a 5-10 minute wait; then it would eventually start. I did forum searching and changed out my IVM (integrated supply module) as a DIY in about 20 minutes... problem fixed. Part cost $100 USD from dealership.

the flashing RND leads to the alternator , maybe have that checked .
When you put in your new battery did you have it registered to your car ???

The grounds and power connections on these cars will cause a no start also. I have fix many by cleaning the connections with a wire brush or sand paper and applying dielectric grease and problem solved.
