I just picked up a new 4.4i. On the second day of driving, with less than a 100 miles, something really strange happened. All of a sudden, all the dash board lights came on and a very strange noise came out of the speakers. It was almost as though I was picking up a CB radio transmission. At that point, the LED display said "Engine Fail Safe Mode". The "service engine soon", "4x4" and "abs brake" lights came on and the car was stuck in second or third gear and no matter what I did the car would not up or down shift.
I got home and when I turned off the car again engine fail safe mode come on and this time, "Trans Fail Safe Mode" came on.
The next day I drove the X5 to the dealer and everything seemed to reset. The car shifted normally and no lights were on except the "service engine soon" .
Does anybody have a clue what could have happened? Could a radio wave or some type of interference have done this?
