    Default Dynamic Drive and charging fault

    Hi there everyone,

    So today while driving my e70 m, i switch on the M mode and as soon i turn off the M mode, a message appear saying battery has stop charging and follow by dynamic drive failure. As i continue driving, the car steering became so hard that I can't turn it at all.

    Any idea what is the cause of this? Did some questioning and the feedback says it's the alternator? Could it be?

    Thanks.

    if it is the alternator then you battery should not be charging and would go flat making the car unable to draw any power from it for start up. It could be the servotronic system that controls the steering feel in the various modes that's gone faulty. But the battery stopped charging message does throw a curve ball into the mix.

    When was the last time the battery was replaced? A weak battery could also trigger various error messages in such cars (with many electric/electronic systems and reliance).

    Get a battery and alternator test done first to make sure they are both healthy, once you've ruled them out then we can move onto the next possible faulty circuit (i do hope that its just the battery).

    Let us know how it goes...
