BMW 8HP used transmission replacement programming
Allows a used transmission to be made operable again after swapping by synchronizing the anti-theft system.
The newer BMW E series and F series vehicles equipped with the ZF 6 speed and 8 speed automatic transmissions are now equipped with a new generation of EWS4 anti-theft protocol. This means the transmission mechatronic is permanently synchronized with the CAS or FEM module.
This prevents the transmission from being used in a different vehicle. After installation, such transmission will be stuck in Park since the anti-theft codes do not match. Until now, the only options where to buy a new virgin transmission from BMW or to part-out the car.
On-site service is available for the Montreal region, please contact us for more information.
1. For this service, you have to mail-in or drop off the replacement EGS module, the FEM/CAS/BDC modules and a working key.
