Fixed it.

I was at a total loss as to what the problem could possibly be. The only change that I had made was moving the car. Movement = things become loose. I re-tightened down all the battery cables and wiggled the BST box around and re-seated it and now all is fine. I have a video of the car's engine sounds that I want diagnosed. I'm not sure if the sounds are normal or if I have a little engine ticking.

I just had the same problem with my car, turned out it was a loose connection at the battery terminal in the engine compartment. I must have knocked it loose yesterday when I was working on some things. I'm glad I found this thread.

This doesn't sound like a battery problem.....it sounds like a module is failing and messing with all the sensors.

EDIT: Or a loose connection. Didn't realize you solved your problem.

oh wow...this is exactly what Im having right now, and Im also still working on it as far as the bumper and the headlights.

MDL335i Can you please point it out to me, where is that battery terminal in the engine compartment is located? That could be my life saver!

If I remember correctly it was the connection behind the plastic part, by the arrow in this picture.

Just make sure that if you replaced the battery yourself, that you code the car for a new battery (any indie shop can do this, or if you have a coding cable, you can do it yourself.) It needs to be done any time you change the actual battery, and any shop that says otherwise doesn't know our cars well enough!

You can do it at a BMW dealership, but they'll usually charge you a silly amount for it.
