Well, sometimes a magnet breaks off, sometimes it's just dust that collects. It acts like a dead battery...and sounds like a dead battery, and it seems to come and go. Beemerboneyard.com if you need one. 30minutes to replace...another 7 years or more of service.
Sorry you're having so much trouble. That's aggrevating for sure.
