I need help...electrical issue
2002 325i with 93k miles on it.
Bluetooth DIY done about a year ago.

My dash lights went out recently, I took it to VOB BMW in Rockville (a mistake), they told me that the bluetooth phone system caused the cars electrical problems. I took the car home, removed the system, and believe it or not the car started working again. Trouble is, the tailights were out on it because they reprogrammed the DRLs and I guess forgot to reactivate the tailights. So I took the car back the next day, but when I got in the dash lights, AC, and stereo were all not working properly. They called me today to tell me they have no clue and that they want a $390 diagnostic fee.

I'm currently looking at getting a new car, and I took it in originally to get it ready to sell.

What should I do?

I unplugged the cars battery for like not even 10 seconds and plugged it back in. Issue went away. Then came back after about 30 minutes. So I unplugged the battery again. Its been like 3 hours and it hasn't come back. I'll see what happens in the morning. I think it has something to do with the K Bus, thats what my searching around the forums has indicated.

Also, the dealer programmed my DRLs to be on, and now the tailights are not working when I turn on the main lights to the car. The brake and indicators work, but I have no tailights. Any suggestions?

Sounds like they have done something seriously wrong when coding the car and don't want to fix it, hence the huge fee.

They replaced the Lighting control module.

All I can say is F*** VOB BMW!!! I was trying to sell this car and all they did was make more problems for me!!
