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.

I-drive controller stop working

I had my battery replace and programmed. And the next day i go outside and get in the car and i notice my idrive controller is not working. I cant press on the "Accept" that displayed on the mmi. I have sound from the radio/cd but cant use the cd changer. I have tried unplugging the lollypop out of the fuse box and even disconnecting the negative side of the battery with no results.
