Got everything to work but can’t see d/s mode when put into drive should be a coding thing any help ?
I removed the shifter malfunction error with coding however just stuck on not seeing the d/s light up when pushing the shifter to the right to engage drive.That certainly sounds like a coding task... I don't have an F series, but it seems odd that you aren't getting any codes for shifter?
Does the stock shifter have this feature? If not it might not have that circuit in the GWS.I disabled the shifter malfunction warning so It shifts and all works fin
I removed the shifter malfunction error with coding however just stuck on not seeing the d/s light up when pushing the shifter to the right to engage drive.
besides all else is fine n,r,p, and the shifter works no problem when pulling the paddles down it all illuminates as it should only d/s does not light up when in drive.
would anyone know what kind of coding needs to be done to have the shifter illuminate when going into d/s ?
The stock shifter has the m/s light however it is to the left and not to the right to push it.Does the stock shifter have this feature? If not it might not have that circuit in the GWS.
Mine is completely stock I found somewhere ona forum and they got the shifter to stop giving the shifter malfunction message. It kept throwing it every time the car would come to a complete stop. So I did this as far as coding with the BimmerCode app.I wrote up a pin out for the old M3 knob but that shifter you have is all can bus as far as I knew.
can you explain how you got it to work with your gearbox? Is the GWS still stock with a different knob?
As far as this diagram the F series of car has this type of shifter connector going to the gws. Could it be a coding thing or a wire thing?So if youre like me, you want to pay as little as possible for parts if you can. For my M3 conversion i noticed that M5 gear knobs go for much cheaper than M3 ones and look exactly the same.... well, not exactly. This is an M3 knob And this is an M5 They are also different in that the m3...bmw.spoolstreet.com
