Steering back information gone wiper turn on without putting on and then could not stop second engine start no dashboard lights on but other thing works for

Please help. I do not understand what happened. All I did was put gas in my car and parked it in my driveway. the next day I tried turning on. Which the car does in deed tried to turn on but it shuts off. It doesn't turn on completely. After the 4th time of trying to turn on the car 2 messages came up. the first message was the Transmission malfunction and the second message was the 4x4 AWD and DSC Malfunction. I am not sure what those messages entail. But When I try to start the car seems to want to tart. all the lights stay on. Can someone please advise. thanks

location of fuse box for a 2006 bmx525xi

This problem happens mostly when the engine is cold, but it has also happens when the engine is up to operating temperature. The ignition appears to abruptly stop firing for a second or two and then resumes functioning correctly. The problem occurs on an inconsistent basis but has been happening for the past several weeks.

Truck won't open/close-latch replaced-worked for 2 days-same issue only this time, when I went to try to open with key, alarm went off.
Was able to close only after slamming really hard-at BMW now.
Interestingly, I did, over the past few weeks, hear a humming sound from trunk when opened and engine on.
BMW says electrical-probably IBM module??

I have a 2006 535xi BMW, I was in a car accident and rear ended someone. My airbag deployed but there was very little exterior damage. Is my car totaled?

Found spots of oil on garage floor-went to shop I use, car put on lift-found rear engine seal leak-said it had been for some time, only now getting to point of leakage from pan-recommended no action but to make sure oil level maintained.

Had the a/c drained and recharged-w/dye put in-two days later, same hot air-am taking back to service in next two days, but would like to be aware of what problems could be; i.e. seal, etc-would a compressor go?-car has been impeccably and religiously maintained and has only 60,000 miles.

With ac off, idles at 650 and downshifts smoothly

The mechanic said that he couln't tell where the coolant leak was coming from. I need to add coolant about every two weeks (500-600 miles). I can't seem to see any noticeable coolant on the ground below the car. Mechanic advised that probably need a new radiator.

i have a 2006 bmw 525xi, and i it started making a noise a couple ofdays ago, it sounds like there is something trapped in the fan, and when i accelerate the noise gets louder. What is it? HElp! I took it an independent mechanic and he stated that it was the alternator, is that even true?
