Hi, I had a problem with my key and the immobiliser kicked in, a tech tried disengaging the battery to see if it reset. Now only my handbreak and abs light come on at the dash. Also electric windows, AC, speedo, petrol gauge, rev counter all have stopped working, iv checked the fuses and no joy? Does one circuit board control these? Any ideas would be appreciated.

This is probably a voltage spike induced issue. There will be a need to scan the car with the proprietary BMW scan tool and report the findings back here. Do that and we will continue.
