Just took my '06 M5 to a local shop (not BMW specialist) to replace the tires. Normally I would take it to the dealer to have the alignment, but today I was a bit lazy so I told the shop to do it as well. When I picked it up, I notice the clock needed to be adjusted and the CD changer was going through its cycle. Then the adaptive headlight malfunction came on.

Is this a coincidence or did the shop do something that might have cause the adaptive headlight malfunction to come on? And seems like the battery was disconnected to have the clock reset and the CD changer to go through its motion. Is this normal after getting an alignment?

Any idea on how to try to correct this problem before taking it to the dealer?

disconnecting the battery for an alignment is not necessary. Did you inspect around the rear wheel wells for excessive rubber? I'd never leave my car unattended at a random tire store. That is almost as bad as valeting your car. you need to run a scan to see if there are any codes stored.

Solved: Just needed to reset the battery. Disconnect the negative terminal for an hour. Reconnect the negative battery cable and the error message went away.

Doesn't dropping the battery for an hour reset the comfort access and the keys need to be reprogrammed again?
