06 325i Strange Electrical (Maybe?) Problem
This is my first BMW and up to this point I've been very pleased. Today, however, something strange started happening. I was driving home from the movies when just a few blocks from home all the lights on the dash came on (all warning, information, etc.) simultaneously and the wipers started up. I couldn't get the wipers to stop using the controls, so I pulled over. After a few minutes trying to figure out what was wrong, I shut the car off but the wipers kept going. I then pulled the key out and that finally stopped the wipers. I started the car and drove the rest of the way home without incident. Later today I was getting ready to head out of town for work (I'm on a contract in a town 2 hrs from where I live so I travel Sunday and return Friday, but since today was holiday Monday....) Anyway, I started the car and the same thing happened within a few minutes of driving. I turned around and went back home and called roadside. They told me there was nothing they could do and I would have to call the dealership tomorrow. At this point I don't want to drive the car and in this condition it's not drivable anyway. So here I am, having borrowed my wife's car while my 45 day old beamer sits parked in my drive way.
Aside from the inconvenience, does anyone have any idea what could be wrong here?
