IDrive Presets Dropping Assignments

I have searched and seen threads talking about this, but can't find any where there is a resolution. Here is some info:

I have a 2014 535d that is about 2 months old. Today when I got in the car after work I went to use one of my 8 iDrive presets and it said "not assigned." All 8 buttons said the same thing, everything else on the iDrive seemed to be fine (equalizer, radio presets, etc). I thought it was weird, so I tried to import my profile from the USB I keep in the car. Only half of the presets returned, only my phone and Nav shortcuts. I figured it was just a glitch and reprogrammed my other settings. Had to run some errands after getting home and changing clothes. Went out to the car and everything was gone again. I tried to reload with the USB and same outcome. Reset everything again and saved the profile again. After going into a store for probably 10 minutes, exact same thing! The iDrive also rebooted after starting to drive this time. When I came home I went back out to the car to find everything gone again.

Anyone have this and figured it out? Thinking a trip to the dealer is in my future. Anybody else have thoughts? Thanks for any help.

Are you using a different FOB each time? I haven't programmed the settings for my second comfort access key fob and when I use it, all the presets are not assigned (as it should be)...

Different key is the most likely cause.

Never used the second key. It has been in my house since the day the car was picked up. I don't even know if the other FOB works.

So the "second" key has no presets assigned. If you used it inadvertently, that would explain your car showing no presets.

Never used the second key. The only time it was in the car was the day I bought the car and drove it home from the dealer. Ever since then it has been hanging on my wife's hook. I'm 100% sure I have never inadvertently used it. Even if I had it doesn't explain why my key doesn't have my presets any longer. My wife and I have different key rings, so I know with 100% certainty that my key is in front of me right now and the car was exactly the same this morning (Sirius presets now gone, no buttons programmed).

I'll post what the dealer says Monday when I hear something. Maybe it will help you as well.

Me too, but it only happened once about two months ago. I reprogrammed them and they have been there ever since.

Dealer had the car today. Said there were some errors in the memory and reprogrammed the whole thing. Hopefully it is fixed. I need to get all my settings back and reprogram all the tweaks I had. Oh well. Hope it's fixed.
