You say: A lot of problems came up....do you have any fault codes you can list here, that may help, also did you get the battery tested or replaced yet?
that would be my first guess. Also unless your mechanic is familiar with this vintage of BMW models go to dealer instead by the sound of your post your "mechanic" is in over his head here...........
Also have you ever verified the service records with the BMW dealer to make sure the battery cable recall fix was done on your vehicle?
