I-Drive controller not working

Postby speedbird » Sun, 16 Oct 2011 13:26:47 UTC

Hi guys, last night my screen went black and i couldnt use the idrive controller, i got the screen back on and i can use all the features like tv, cd changer nav etc but only through voice control. Ive turned the engine on and off etc but its still the same. Ive read on forums that you can reset it by holding several buttons at once but none seem to be for the e65/66? Can anyone shed some light on wether there is a reset for the e65/66 or is this a fuse issue? also the menu button and the extra button both next to the controller dont work either. Your help would be grately appreciated.

Regards.

Hi mate,

Try dis-connecting the battery for an hour and see if that helps.

yeah....right hand side next to the spare wheel. If your lucky you can get to the terminal through the access hatch. If not you take spare wheel cover out for better access.
