My wife has a 2001 X5 with problem. The car sat for 4 days this past week and needed a jump to start (on a drip charger now for overnight recharge).

I was looking for internal lights that may be left on to see if there was a slow drain. The only thing I noticed that seemed odd was that the light on the shifter column that lights up the P R N D light ramains on?

Does not seem normal for this light to remain on, can someone confirm whether or not their shifter light rermains on?

Also, if this is not normal, has this happened to anyone else, and if so, how did you fix it so the light goes out?

Thanx,
