BMW Key Reader
We utilise the same key reader system that BMW dealerships do accessing the same information.
The Key Reader system allows us to read your service data from your current ignition key at the point of your arrival in our service reception, ensuring we are fully aware of all the cars history and requirements. This system allows us to print a vehicle specific service sheet by connecting to BMW’s head office in Germany allowing us exactly the same information provided to authorised BMW dealers.
BMW Software Updates
BMW release software updates periodically to rectify previous bugs or improve functionality.
As these vehicle’s age any software faults become apparent and are released in the way of a ‘flash’ update. Flash software updates completely rewrite a control units operating data (OS), much like when manufactures of mobile telephones or computers release an update. There is however a difference in the update process.
A complete software update addresses system wide issues, features and upgrades any of your car’s electronic control modules (ECUs) that require it. To make sure you are getting exactly the update you need, our BMW diagnostic computers will first check the hardware number on each of your ECUs and determine a measures plan for compatible software versions. Failure to update modules in this fashion may result in communication problems from ECU’s.
When we carry out software updates we use the BMW dealer tool which (via the internet) is linked to BMW AG, this is to ensure your vehicle has the very latest software available. It is also imperative that the vehicle has a stable voltage (of 14 volts), this is achieved by using an intelligent battery charger.
