4x4 light caused by low rpms

Hey guys,

335xi 6mt - was crawling in traffic in first gear, eventually slowed down enough, pressed the clutch in at 500 rpm and noticed my radio shut off and came back on immediately. (sound cut out for a second)

Thought to myself huh that's odd.

Continued in traffic, engaged first gear up to about 1500 rpm, then let off the throttle, felt the engine go from a pull to a lug and my 4x4 light along with yellow brake and brake pad light.

I scanned it with the BT scanner, there was one code completely in german - It did say something about Bosch and a sensor though

That's all the info I have :/

Anyone have any insight on this?

Had the same problem, checked the positive and negative terminals and noticed the positive was loose. I tighten the loose screw, hopefully that was the actual problem.
