Check your battery, my 4x4 light went on when my battery needed to be replaced. Its pretty common symptom of a dying battery. As for the problems with your X I dont have any input because I havent experienced that issue. Anyways I'm sure another member on these forums can help. Best of luck with your X!

I have a 06 X5 30i and the 4x4 light came on just over a week ago. my wife flattened the battery a few weeks back by leaving the glove box open over a week while I was away. Not sure if its related but some threads suggest that low battery less than 12.2 volts can cause some problems. Anyway, I charged up the battery and can't get the light out as it stays on. No other warning lights have been on. I have tried lock to lock and disconnecting the battery to reset the ecu to no avail as the light is still on.. appreciate any suggestions for checking. I have ordered a OBD2 analyzer which hope to get this week.

Is that the only warning light on? or are there others dsc,abs? I had same issue all warning lights on. found a shop that could read the codes from the OBDII had a transfer case failure code don't remember the exact pid but. Found on line that when this occures the transfer case acuator motor doesnt fail, the plastic gear does. I removed to check and the gear was stripped. Rather then bend over and replace with oem parts when all that is needed is the gear. I ordered the gear from speadometer gears online. They also have a diy site to assist you when you replace the gear instead of the complete unit from bmw. Replaced the gear and all warning lights went out,been fine since.
