Brake warning light; radio stops working; A/C/ stops

I have a 2005 325XI. about two-three weeks ago, as i was driving, the yellow exclamation point light would come on, the "brake" light; "ABS" light; the radio would stop working; A/C stops. last a few seconds and would go away. The other day, same thing happened but transmission indicator came on. I turned car off and started it again everything appeared normal. what the hell is going on? I read it may be bad ignition switch, maybe the brake pedal is rubbing against wires, IDK...any help ???

Your battery is on its way out or ignition switch start failing.In my case was ignition switch.I would go with ignition switch first ,easy to replace and inexpensive.My battery
kept going for 11 years,yes 11years!!! your battery is just 6 years old, should be fine,but you never know.Good luck!
