Starter/ignition malfunction

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey everyone,

First time poster, long time lurker. I took possession of a mineral white metallic xdrive m235i in January to replace my long time STI, and while I love it, I just had to have it towed. My wife and I took a trip downtown to see an exhibit at the science centre, and when we went to leave, the car wouldn't start and showed "starter/ignition malfunction. Please call roadside assistance".

The car is unmodified from stock and I was wondering if anyone else had encountered that malfunction as my search of the forum and Google turned up nothing.

Is it just clicking or struggling to crank?

No activity or sounds whatsoever from under the hood.

And you tried unlocking/locking/unlocking the car?

If you lock the car and walk always for a few minutes the computer goes to sleep.

Could have been a glitch. But regardless should have dealer scan the error.

Sorry to hear about this. I've got one and really like it. Not as raw as my Evo X but better in most other aspects.

Did try that too but no joy. The dealer is closed until Monday so I'll see what they have to say.

Thank you for the super quick responses!
