I received a rebuilt ABS module for my 2002 525i.  It cleared all the fault codes that the previous module exhibited, only now I get a code looking for the auto transmission module.  Problem being, I have a manual transmission.  Is it possible to reprogram the rebuilt module to quit looking for an automatic transmission?

It is possible but you won't be able to do it with a basic scanner. You may need INAP to change the ABS module coding. A BMW shop should be able to do that for you in less than an hour.

These are always re-programmable but a simple scanner might have limited options and functionalities.

 

I am not sure if you can do it yourself though. BMWs are sophisticated machines and if you have done it before, I'd suggest not to try it.

Thanks for the input! I don’t have the right equipment (or knowledge for that matter) to do it myself, but I did call around and found a BMW shop that will do it for me. I kinda figured that’s what it would take. Thanks again though, now I can quit searching for miracles🙂.
