I-drive knob acting up

Guys I need your help. Normally when you turn the I drive knob, and the screen hasn't finished loading, you get a small buzzing, as the knob vibrates letting you know you need to wait. Well now, it vibrates and makes a noise all the time, no matter how long you wait, and its difficult to move from item to item on screen. Anyone else had this issue? What part do you think has broken?

Thanks

The older ones did. (They stopped the haptic feedback at some point in 2007 iirc)

My knob doesn't buzz or vibrate, it's more of a click/resistance feeling for me.

I have gotten an issue where my knob would spin infinitely until I restarted the car....it only happened twice.

Sorry guys, so my haptic feedback is acting up. It doesn't really make a buzz sound, more like it vibratesa ton more than it used to, and makes a small noise. What could be the cause? Also, does the BT scan tool clear Check engine soon lights?

I have haptic feedback... I could be wrong, but it doesn't sound software related.. Sounds to me like the motor that provides the feedback is acting up. It can be replaced, I believe something like 370 from Tischer.
