I just had the same problem, it stayed for 24 hours then turned to a "worn brake pads"!!

took the car to the dealer and (after checking) they discovered that the idrive unit needed a reflash, they said it's normal and happened to a number of cars. It did scare the hell out of me!

I had the same problem but left my JB2 in when I went into the dealership. It ended up being a steering wheel sensor malfunction. All they had to do was replace the steering wheel sensor. They couldn't detect the JB2, so everything was still under warranty. :thumbup:
