check any exposed wire behind CCC, If all wires checked ok, you need to replace CCC. After you replaced CCC needs to be programmed. It cost you a lot of money. I hope this will help.
Good luck!

not a BMW expert but had this same problem, it has to be very near the battery, best advice is follow the 12 volts out and look first for a bad cable (positive is more common but neg can do it) that is broken inside, In my case it was right where the Pos cable came off the battery, 2 inches away at T junction where the cable splits and there were two cables ---voltage the battery and not four inches to the left of it.

A volt meter will save a lot of time.

It may be a manufacture code,not generic code

Codes don't have letters in the middle of them

5 miles, you will surely ruin it in a hurry,stop using it
& have it checked out
