weird Idrive issue - no music wont shut off

So this morning i fire up the m3, let it warm up for 2~3 minutes and take off for work. As i'm driving about a mile or so i realize theres no music. (mute icon wasn't on) I initially thought may be its cloudy in VA so the SAT isn't working so i switch it to radio, no music. Same with CD.

I get to the next red light, shut the car off and the Idrive is STILL ON!!, err. Light turns green i drive a bit more and then at the next red same thing. I restarted the car about 5 times and no change. So then i initiated a bluetooth call to my vmail and viola! speakers work and after the call ended my stereo works.

I make it back to work which was about 25 miles I shut the car off and ERRRRR I-drive won't turn off again. I tried rebooting about 3 times and same.


For shits and giggles i hit the SOS button and call bmw assist. They tell me they can't do anything but tell me to take it to the nearest service center.


I end the call and then the car shuts off.


Anyone else exp this?

Doh - a friend just told me i could of rebooted the i-drive by pushing both eject buttons (DVD and CD) and the volume knob (a.k.a the mute button) at the same time. I'll try that next time
