04 530i off key drain,

I am having problems with my 530 i. My battery died a couple days ago so I took it to interstate battery where I purchased it from to see what was going on and it does have a warranty but when they check the battery it worked well and a recharge didn't get back to me. They were telling me that it must be some sort off keys drainage. Now the window wipers will not turn off, the battery going dead, passenger restraint system is no longer working, I drive control is no longer working and the buttons on the steering wheel are not working the cruise control is not working. The dealer is charging $350 dollars just to do a diagnostic test on it do I just need to reprogram the computer? Here is a picture of my dash board of what it's saying. What should I do?

This is a really scary dashboard message. My head will blow if I ever see all these errors. Instead of going to the dealer, don't you have an indy near by? Indy cost will definitely be more than half of the dealer's. Sounds like something is really draining your battery. I'll have a indy check it out.

Thanks for the reply. I got an indy to do a total reset for $100. I drove the car for a week and now the battery is dead again. I took it back to them and there is a noise under the hood that keeps running when the car is shut off. They said it was idle regulator. They are not sure if the relay is bad or it the part. Has this happened to anyone before? Where is the relay for the idle regulator?
