Sounds like a fried circuit board, did you bump anything with the positive clamp and did you put the ground clamp on first before the positive - if not you could have fried the board $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    than likely you have a CCC ( car communication computer )and in order
    to replace it the technician needs what is called a Teile Clearing
    authorization number from engineers at BMW. Go back to them and demand
    they write PUMA and ask to replace the CCC.

My battery is always drained after I stop driving the x5?


Is the battery and the battery connection in good conditions? Try to charge the battery overnight with a battery charger. If then it starts your engine, the battery may be ok.
I recently had an issue with my car that the connection to the battery was corroded that was not visible just by looking at the battery. The connection had to be cleaned and solved the issue.
If the battery and generator in your vehicle is ok, then it must be a short circuit in the car that drains the battery. Locating that may require shop visit.

BMW X5 - 2005


Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.

BMW has a free fix for that! It's a factory recall with the pixels. Check with your dealer.
