2007 BMW 530xi Base 6Cyl3.0L - Body & Interior
Why did I lose my control panel (idrive) display
almost 6 months out of warranty with only about 35K miles, suddenly the control display on my 5 series disappeared. Also, no radio. Everything else is fine.

    Hmmmm have you checked the fuse? the fuse which controls the CID? (Fuse 61, 10A).

    Fuses are fine. Dealership today basically 'rebooted' the computer. It fixed the problem, but they said that fix would most likely not last. It needs a new software pkg, which will cost about $1500. When it does happen again, I'll try negotiating with BMW to either pay for it (because of low mileage and only 5 months out of warranty) or split the expense; however, I won't hold my breath that they do either. Thanks so much to you for taking the time to answer and help.
