Had a bit of a scare today. Had a Dr. appt and the hospital had recently installed a couple of Level 2 charging stations. As a bonus they are the only 2 shady parking spots and it was in the 90's today, so parked, plugged in, and walked across to the clinic. As usual the doc was late so I got about an hour and a half of free charging. Before leaving the clinic and walking back to the hospital I used ConnectedDrive to climatize the car. Got to the car and the AC was running and it was nice and cool inside. Unplugged the charging cord, climbed in, pushed the start button and got a "check engine" light. Tried to shift into drive, but no go. Hit start/stop to shut it off and tried again. Same thing. Messed around with it for a few minutes and got out to check something, got back in, and this time no check engine light and was able to shift into drive.
Got home and plugged in my Bluetooth OBD dongle and checked for codes. No codes. But on the way home my main iDrive screen went dark with orange letters saying "No Signal" (see my other thread). Don't know if this might have been related or not.
So, had my heart thumping for a few minutes, sitting with an i3 that wouldn't drive. Not sure what caused the check engine or what cleared it, but I'm sure happy that it cleared. Hope I don't see it again.
