I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

 

these types of symptoms are usually caused by a faulty ignition switch, I would suggest you start there and be sure to check fuses if you have note.

 

the other possibility would be a failed control module somewhere on the vehicle which is causing interference for other systems. To diagnose this, either the vehicle will need to be scanned with a BMW scan tool, or you will need to start unhooking components one by one until the rest come back online.

 

Sorry if you were hoping for a different answer, please don't shoot the messenger - I can only give the honest answer, which I have. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for my honest and prompt response, and I receive nothing for my time and answer until a positive rating is clicked.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
