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.
all of these systems are interconnected.
when the system stops working, usually it indicates than one of the various control computers on the system has failed.
usually the most common one that fails is the bluetooh/phone module but it can be others.
in order to verify the cause you will need to have the car scanned with a bmw scan tool to verify the cause
