The car has detected a failure that will cause damage, so it shut itself
down. I suggest an independent BMW service center as opposed to one at the
dealership. My limited experience is that these shops are as good as the
dealer service, but with much lower overhead.
When you say it's not starting, what happens? Nothing - or the lights etc
dim? First thing I'd check is the battery volts which should be over 12. A
low battery because perhaps of a failed charging system or the battery
being knackered will give just this result.
