had a starting issue this evening, went to my in laws for dinner when i went to leave to drive home the car wouldn't start.
It pops up with a 'service' message/fault on the dash but wont crank.... everytime you go to crank the engine it pops up with a ignition on! error fault on the idrive
The bmw roadside assist tech had no idea, so she is getting towed to the dealer tomorrow....
Any idea on what it may be? It cant be a battery issue everything works fine, clutch is being fully depressed (it wouldn't pop up with a service fault if this was the case?) all fuses are fine, surely the starter motor wouldn't just go? You can hear the fuel pump prime also....
The car has also been driving and starting fine!
I'm no expert but its like a faulty starter button?
