Default E53 EGS reprogramming WinKFP - downshift 2 to 1 issue


I am now really desperate for help on this. Car is having issue with downshift from 2 to 1 as it engages 1st gear only when stopped. It fills like nudge at the back. If in sport mode it does not do it. If I reset gearbox addaptions using INPA it is fine for a while then nudge is back.

I really need to sort this out before 3000 miles holiday this summer. Gearbox oil was changed together with filter. Guibo is fine too. The software on gearbox is till 2004 - when vehicle was manufactured. My last hope was to upgrade software. I've got cable which works with INPA but cannot get it working with WinKFP. Also, cannot find my assembly line number - 7549954.

If software fails I think next would be expensive torque converter.

Any advise please?

OK, I will answer my own question. I've upgraded WinKFP to SP daten 53. The tricky bit which nobody seems to be mentioning is that instead of BMW-FAST for e53 and older versions of BMW you have to select KWP2000* protocol. Gearbox software updated OK

Hope this helps somebody. Thanks if it does

Hello, I have faced similar issue with my 2005 X5 3.0i, with GM gear box. After reset is everything fine, but after about 5 km I have the "Trans. Fail Safe Program" on the cluster followed by jerks between shift. Stronger reducing from 4 to 3.
All the modules has already been updated.

Do you think that could it be a DME problem?

Thank you for your help...
