    Exclamation 6AT 335xi / Changed the Battery almost same problem...See codes;

    Well last night i went and bought a battery and changed it, Cleared all codes and drove around the block a few times and then BOOM i get like a kick from the transmission, Like going from AWD to RWD and Transmission malfunction; Drive Moderately, 4x4, ABS lights come ON....

    So i scanned my car again (BT Tool) and every single Fault/Code in there almost says something about power management; voltage/battery etc.

    I checked all fuses by the glove box, all checked out, i even pulled out all the 30amp and physically checked and a few others as well and they were all fine.

    IDK, well anyway i thought i'd post a new thread as i'm waiting for a flatbed tow truck to have it towed to my mechanic, and i'll update this thread with whatever he finds, or if you guys have any opinions please reply.

    Thank's.

    Did you code it?

    Maybe it is the actuator that @BavarianBullet and @Matt@AUTOCouture suggested in the other thread. Maybe theres a short in the actuator, connector, or even harness that is causing the other electrical issues?

    Sounds like you didn't code the battery.

    Yeah forgot that, but still...that doesnt explain why am i throwing the same faults almost, i just dropped it off at the shop and told him to register the battery cause i had forgot and well see from there, so effing weird! And like i said, i get like a kick from the tranny i feel it on the gas pedal and all the codes pop up Transmission Malf. feels like the power from the front stops and goes to the rears during that kick..

    Doesn't coding tell the DME a ton of info about the battery and its characteristics? If it's not coded properly, perhaps the DME is still throwing the faults as it's in something similar to limp mode.

    Might as well just code it to eliminate the variable and go from there.

    If the car isn't "told" that a new battery is in, by registering (coding) it properly, it will continue to throw all kinds of weird codes.

    +1. My guess is either the servo motor is blown or the worm gear has been stripped. Either is a pretty easy/inexpensive fix (relative to a new t-case). Alot of x3's had this issue. I also think a few on "the other" forum had similar issues.

    Ok, my mechanic just called me and said it is the Altenator, it is not charging the battery and when it is charging it, it's chargin it at 18v, so its over charging.. No idea how the altenator came to be the problem, only thing i could think of is that when i was leaking oil from the oil fiter housing gasket and oil or w.e might have gotten in there and mess things up, but i leaked the oil more then 2-3 months ago though..

    Cool, glad you figured it out and that it isn't something serious.

    Voltage regulator problem. Just to be safe, I would highly recommend changing the battery at the same time. I went through 3 alternators in one week on my Merc (voltage regulator every time). After reading around, I found that a defective battery can cause the voltage reg to crap out. With the last alternator I also replaced the battery and had no issues after that. It's relatively cheap insurance to avoid blowing up another alternator.

    Sorry, I totally dunced. The title of the thread says right in it that you changed the battery. Change the alternator and you should be good to go.

    Gotta run, I'm late for my reading comprehension class...

    If you're savvy you can get a new voltage regulator instead of a whole alternator, saving some $$$

    Okay you don't have to be too smart to google 335 voltage regulator....
