Google DBC Malfunction & you should see what you are looking for. Did a dealer do this to you, or did you just run the battery dead?

Sounds like your battery is bad. Take it & have it checked, & along with the alternator.

Good Luck!

+1 for a dead battery. Make sure you get your new battery registered when it is fitted, also make sure you replace like for like ie, the same Ah rating & replace an AGM battery with another AGM if fitted, if not additional coding should be done to the CAS module.

Also a tip for searching for solutions or problems for your car is to look under the e60 threads. There are far more e60s out there & on top of that there are a lot more DIYers with e60 than e63. There's a lot of commonality between the e60 & e63.
