HI all,

Please if anyone can help

I seem to be having an issue with my 2010 F10 520d SE where the language keeps changing on its own to German. I can start the car, the iDrive displays English menus but then changes to German This used to be every so often, but now its everytime i start the car. When it is in German, the bluetooth phone connection doesn't work and the display for the PDC doesn't show, although it still beeps like normal and it won't let me manually change the language back.

This has really got me puzzled! It's got to be a software glitch, has anyone come across the same random behaviour?

First glance would be battery on way out, but behaviour after starting in English might mean a short or break in power feed perhaps?
Make and break any connectors you can find in the area.... mind you means getting to the area :)

Battery

I would say that its a remote key battery issue.
Seems like remote key is switching to previous owner settings, or original German factory language settings.
Try replacing battery.
