this morning, and to my distress, i turned on my car as normal and proceeded to drive to school. however i noticed that my computer toggle (on the left arm) wasn't working and i could no longer scroll through the various on screen options; ie the time, avg kph, avg gas usage, etc.
With that being said my battery light came on along side my check oil light (in red!). Immediately i pulled over to check my oil but to the best of my knowledge i had a sufficient amount, it was of acceptable colour, and it had been only about 5000km since my last full change.
Furthermore my speedometer is inoperable! i am no longer able to see how fast i am going; thankfully i know my car well enough to estimate my speed.
Is this a computer problem? or something else/worse? any direction on where and who to talk too would be very appreciated. I am now in the Ottawa area and only know of two dealerships that i can take it too
so if at all possible i would like to fix this myself; or take it to a reliable bmw specialist in Ottawa.
Thanks again for any and all input on this matter.
