i drive turned red while driving, wont turn on

idrive randomly turned red/orange while driving, i pressed dvd eject to take out the dvd i was watching (dvd in motion) and it turned off completely and my speaker went down

i tried holding the volume/power button down for 30 seconds and letting go, didnt work. i tried holding power and eject button at same time, nothing

i disconnected battery and waited 30 minutes, reconnected, didnt work

car runs fine, just no idrive/music/anything. wtf can this be? 2013 m6 vert.

If you did the reset correctly...the iDrive screen should have went blank. If it didn't go blank...then some procedure that was to occur probably didnt'.

Make sure the START button is pressed (without foot on brake...engine NOT running). Then follow the instruction below where it says to press & hold the VOL button for at least 25 seconds. I'd also pull up the main MENU screen just to be on the safe side.

See paragraph that red arrow is pointing to in pic below from the TIS:

If the fuse was blown, it would never work. More likely that it's a loose wire or connection somewhere

can you scan the car with ista? i see your having issues with the cic and i wouldnt be suprised if it is causing other parts to not work as it is the information hub in the car. but based off the power down and restart i would suspect it is either the cic unit itself is failing, or the quadlock connector is loose.

wow. good solution, cant imagine it got that hot though to shut down the infotainment system. but maybe due to the constant video demand from CIC, NBT doesnt seem to have that issue, perhaps a processing difference between the different systems.

Regardless nice find!

embarrassing, but i celebrated too soon.

i went 2-3 days without it crashing.

2-3 days without using a dvd, and it didnt crash, i assumed it was fixed. today, driving 10 mph, no dvd in tray for 3 days, and out of nowhere i get this screen again for 20 seconds before it goes dark



my HUD also crashed..until it restarted 30 min later, only to die immediately again, now my idrive is dead but my HUD is active.

i have alot of codes..

Central Gateway Module codes

Quote:
101008 - unresolvable ambiguous routing - SG not in SVT target table

100600 - flexray protocol startup time is too high

930006 - sudden light off - MOST: light goes out unexpectedly

100100 - Contact to FZM slave lost

100104 - HW weckgrund ZGW

100001 - VcmResultSvtCheck - identity check: differences have been detected between SVT actual and SVT target

100204 - Message monitoring: system context signal failed
Heads up Display code

Junction Box Electronics codes

Quote:

002040 - PDC: reset due to watchdog timeout

002044 - K-LIN_5 : LIN management desynchronization
After clearing all codes and starting car, idrive still dead, heres the codes

honestly this is a clusterfuck. Im thinking, can it be that video input cable, if the power goes out to idrive? i mean the speaker goes down, and everything. if it was video input problem, would speaker go down? im hoping its not the CIC unit, but it may be...i have warranty but aftermarket, i dont think covers CIC

I cant find SHIT on most of these codes

contact bimmer-tech.net for deeper assitance with that. i would say the head unit died imo. the zgw and cgw still appear to be responding. i bet the fiber optic port is dying in the head unit. that is the loss in lock missing. having dealt with fiber optic systems before typically losing lock is data bit stream errors. or loss of reference clock. for the screen to display i would say the power cable is good, the display cable is also probably good, since with no input the screen turns off. its probably easy to say just replace the dead unit but i fear that may be the solution instead of something a little cheaper or easier.

hmm. if the unit itself is dead that sucks but id want to know for sure before sinking it those bucks to replace it instead of a 50$ cable

True. You may be able to get a used cable too. I forget if it is wrapped into the harness with cloth tape.

i just took out my CIC..i saw a blue 15 fuse in the back , before replacing the CIC unit i replaced the blue fuse. it works now, but the problem is intermittent. so i will wait 2 days to see how it does before replacing the CIC

potential coincidence, only time will tell right now. did you unplug the quad lock and put it back on? potentially reconnecting could solve your problem, provide better contact on the connector blades. it if the CIC unit is truly failing it will come back up as a failure. just curious how much was a replacement CIC head unit?

i played a video for about 30 miinutes, still working. im trying to get it to fail again but it wont. i have 11 days left return for the cic unit.

no, all i did was replace the fuse. i should have unplugged it though...damn.

it cost 300$ for a used one off ebay that was tested off a 13 m6
