Hi I have a 2013 i3 REX with a drive train error (in red) and the car is stuck in park. I have replaced the 12 volt battery in the frunk. The week before the fault the car wind mirrors folded in the wrong way when the car was sitting in garage un-locked and the windows open halfway. ANY IDEAS (41400 miles) Thanks David
The wing mirror folding and windows opening halfway could be explained by an unintended long press of the unlock button on the fob. This has happened to others when the fob is in a pocket and its unlock button is pressed against something else in the pocket, for example. So these behaviors are likely independent of the drive train error.
You need to read the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) that has caused the drive train error so that you can better understand the problem. Being stuck in Park with a red drive train warning indicates a fairly serious problem that will need to be fixed before your i3 is drivable. Having your car towed to a BMW repair center might be the only solution.
