318is has been working like a champ up to now. for a few weeks now, i've had a signal on my instrumental cluster that has been on (looks like a little red circle, with 3 hash-lines, on each side), which i was told was just my brake light.....

.....BUT now, overnight, my car wont start at all. it just DIED. the ignition wont even turn over.

..... I got a friend of mine to give me a jump, and the car came on fine, and ran fine. 2 days later, after not driving it at all, it was dead again! WTF?!?

..... can anyone give me any clues as to what the hell is going on with my bimmer, please, cheers!
