BMW Mechatronics Problems: The BMW 520i Case

BMW Mechatronics Problems: The BMW 520i Case – BMW 520i mechatronics is an integrated automation platform that allows machines to be connected through the use of a central computer. This system not only saves time by utilizing all available resources but also provides more flexibility while maximizing production, efficiency and quality in manufacturing operations.

BMW Mechatronics Problems: The BMW 520i Case

MECHATRONICS” comes from a combination of the words, “mechanical” and “electronics”.

What is Mechatronics?

mechatronics is a field of engineering that focuses on the design, manufacture, and operation of mechanical systems including sensors, actuators, computers and controllers. These are used in applications such as robotics or mobile devices to make them more efficient. Mechatronic engineers typically work with other disciplines like electrical engineering or computer science to create these innovative products.

The mechatronics engineer’s job can be challenging because they need skills from multiple areas within the industry. This includes being able to write code for embedded programming languages that range across numerous platforms when designing new projects. Working closely with mechanical engineers ensures high-quality outcomes but also requires some knowledge about how electromechanical systems function under normal conditions
In addition to development processes involving traditional methods (elements), there has been an increasing demand for designers who have experience at using digital fabrication technologies in order not only produce higher quality parts but use less material than conventional manufacturing methods entail.

Problem on BMW 520i

In the design of the BMW Automatic Transmission, for example, it uses an internal Transmission Control Module and Solenoid Package known as Mechatronics.

Transmissions with solenoids are known to have problems from time to time and require mechatronic replacement because the solenoid is sealed as part of the mechatronic unit.

A BMW 520i in particular experienced a mechatronic failure in the transmission and headed for repairs.

Mechatronic unit replacement can be expensive. However, we source our genuine parts directly from trusted sources which we then code to fit our customers’ BMWs.

Common symptoms for failed Mechatronics:

  • A subtle jolt from the gearbox as it slows to a stop.
  • Flick 5th gear when driving at highway speed.
  • Shifting gears 5 through 6 is very loud.
  • Delayed reverse gear engagement.
  • Transmission fails safe mode when switching from 1-2 and 2-1.
  • Gear monitoring errors are saved.
