Issues after jump start!!!

So... my OEM battery gave out today while I was out and about. Got a jump start from my friend's E46 M3; my car started up, but threw some errors. "Lighting System! Stop vehicle". Front lights were on, tail lights worked, brake lights worked, but blinkers/high beam/angel eyes/power window/folding mirrors didn't.

Got home, took my other car to get a battery at walmart. Spend an hour installing the new battery and registering it via INPA. Car starts up great now, however errors was still there and lights were still not working. Worst case my FRM3 crapped out. But the DSC/EDC also didn't work. Not sure what modules those are or sensors. I checked the fuses and everything looks good.

Not sure if anyone had any issues like this or with any other modules after a jump start. Also any suggestion would be great. Probably will be taking it to the dealership and get rekt.

oh yeah, here is a pic.

Update: Took the car to Crevier BMW this morning, SA said it could be a relay (hopefully). Wont know till Friday, they were kinda backed up today.

Also, just curious; what is the proper way to jump start a BMW? I read up some mixed info, some say under the hood, some say through the rear to the battery direct.

Doesn't the owner's manual describe the method for jump starting?

Yeah, it says to do it the "under the hood" method. Which I did, but resulted in a not so good outcome , but just curious.

Sometimes when the charge level on the battery is low the car will throw random codes because it disables different systems. My DBC, DSC, and EDC did this when my battery charge level was low and the car was running. Maybe try clearing all the codes and restart to see what comes up.

Not sure if anyone else dose it this way? But, hook it up from the hood, rev the car that's feeding power for about 10 seconds, turn on the power and let the electronics boot up, then start the car.

I thought so too, but when I installed the new battery and cleared all the codes, same errors popped up and my FRM wasn't responding. I tried to reset it via ncsxpert,tool32, but not responding.

Update: got word from the dealer that my FRM blew out . So they quoted me $1300 to get it replaced and programmed and perform another diagnostic. However I order the FRM3 module myself and will give it a shot. In the next few days.

I'm not having them do the job. Going to do it myself. I order the part for $340 shipped. Part #61359340339

I'll post up the break down once I get the invoice when I get my car back.

Ouch! I have a bad DSC/DBC module. $2800 job, 3rd party warranty will cover the cost. It's crazy that little gremlins like this cost so much to repair. I know it's an M car but jeez.

They said my FRM is shot (dead/fried). I ordered a new one and it should be here in a few days. Going to swap it out mysql and see if anything else is broken, or if that even resolve my issue.

Car is still drivable, just my windows are down ( and without power window I can't roll it up lol ), car locks and unlock fine with the key.
