iDrive keeps freezing? Any possible fixes

Have a March 07 Build 335i Coupe.

iDrive with PDC. It seems that sometimes when I go into reverse, then quickly back into 1st gear, never hitting the accept button, the entire iDrive freezes up at the Accept screen. Taking the key out and putting it back in doesn't resolve the problem either. Is there a way to do a manual iDrive reset?

What happens if you rub your tummy as it is booting up? Please test and post back the results.

Yes Press both Eject Buttons and the radio power button at the same time. iDrive will reset.


If this continues to happen head to your dealer. My car was less than a week old and was getting the entire CCU replaced. The Whole Brains of the GSP if you will. There is a known issue with some of the GPS Units hanging. the Fix is replacement.

Mine has been working like a champ since 100%

A BMW is Just a Car, it doesn't make you smart, handsome, cool, or wealthy. Get over it.
