Mein Auto: 745Li
Dynamic Drive Inactive

I'm new here but have visited often. My 745Li was at the dealer for six days getting a battery. They told me I also need a DSC module but I haven't noticed any problems that required this. When I'm driving, this DDI comes on even after the new battery and I know when it's going to happen because everything blacks out and come back on. They told me the alternator was working. I want to get it fix but I don't want to play the it this no it's this game. Need help.

I've had that come on when the car doesn't get driven much for a couple days. It really needs to be driven for the battery to be charged properly since it uses some just sitting.

@ Carboy...I noticed in your avatar that your car is a 2008. I have a 2004 of same color,
My question is, I thought they did the face lift on those after 2007, but your front looks the same as mine? Just curious.

Hey its the alternator, I just had the same issue AND the alternator tested fine.. My symptoms were that my NAVI screen and dash lights would black out and sometimes the music too and then come back on and the DDI would pop up.. Changed the alternator and everything is good now..

The facelift E65/E66 was from 06-08. Do you have a facelift front end?

What I would suggest is just drive the car a little more because the battery doesn't probably have enough memory of the car so the more you drive it, it will program more and go back to normal
