I would recommend you get the exact specs for that ignition switch. The problem is that if your car is already too old, you will have another issue coming up elsewhere. BMWs are usually made with a "road life". Once it has exceeded myriads of problems start to come up. When you fix one, another comes up. If you can, get a newer model.

The only way I can see you can turn this off safely is pull the fuse for the fuse pump. Its #11 7.5amp located under the hood up in the corner. Problem is your still going to be powered up like on accessorie position so you may want to unplug the battery. Be careful tho. You may have memory stuff that you need before you disconnect.

Hi, if it's intermittent, it is not serious. First check the plugs and change them if needed. If not the plugs, other possible causes are the ignition wire and a dirty injector. Run a can of injector cleaner thru the tank and if the problem continues replace the ignition wires. If it still doesn't resolve, I would replace the #3 injector. For more info on the code, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

It sounds like your ignition module is starting to go bad. As it gets worse it will be harder and harder to start, until it doesn't start at all. Your crankshaft sensor could also be going bad. Hope this helps.
