I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
this is very concerning as you could end up stranded at any time.
this warning is not specific so the only way to verify 100% what is triggering it is to have the computer fault logs scanned from the car using a BMW scan tool.
commonly on this model a failing alternator, failing battery, failed control module or melting at the fuse box will cause this kind of warning, but again, the faults must be read out and proper tests carried out hands on to verify
