Ignition malfunction

I went to start my 2012 535xi this morning and the car would not start. I have had it since August, has 4k miles on it. The nav screen said ignition malfunction. When I arrived at the dealer, they said they would run test but haven't run into this issue on any other F10's. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Always frustrating when you buy a new car and have a malfunction at 4k miles.

Thanks!

i had the same issue with my car in mid jan. had to leave for a three-week trip and came back to the issue still persisting AND also the battery dying.

turns out i needed a new starter and a new battery. out of warranty. damage: $2,300. work was done at BMW Santa Monica.

FWIW, the car is a 2011 535i and has 43k miles on it. purchased Aug 2010.
