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.

2002 745LI not going to sleep in 16 minutes

Just inquiring if anyone has had an issue with this. Presently it will not enter the sleep mode after locking in the prescribed estimated times. The console light flashes. Investigating i have found by pulling the telephone module fuse it will go to sleep. Unfortunately this module cannot be unpowered as it provides the radio and gps antennae system. Is it a common issue caused by a faulty telephone module?

You can bypass the telephone module with a fiberoptic loop. Watch the video here for more information. This will let you have a functioning audio/gps/radio/idrive and hopefully if you correctly identified the telephone module as the culprit, allow your car to go to sleep.
