Have you tried to actually hit the SOS button a lot of times when this malfunction happens if you hit the SOS and they connect you to the system when you get back out of the call it works properly.Who replaced the clutch? Some Vehicles had a recall on the system that requires reprogramming of the module with an updated software level.So I would try the SOS button and if that doesn't work I would call the dealer and see about a recall applicable to your car, you need the VIN number to do that. Then if there's no recall I would find a local independent BMW specialist, and bring the vehicle to them because it's going to require hooking up to a very expensive professional-grade scan tool. It's probable that the iDrive control module which is the screen and everything is faulty more or less. www.car-part.com is going to be your best source for a used iDrive unit.
