The reason that happens is that the key was left in the on (accessory) position while you were refueling. The only way to fix it that I have heard of is to replace the entire board. I always remove my keys when refueling, it is a freak problem that BMW is well aware of and was brought up at gateway tech. the method that was mentioned may work but I have not heard anything about it.
