Arrow Adaptive Transmission Reset

Hi guys,

There's a procedure of resetting the transmission adaptation on most BMWs which goes along the following steps; does this work for the 6 series? Has anyone tried it?

- Foot off brake
- Press start to turn on car (but not start)
- Press accelerator for about 30-40 seconds
- Press start to turn off car
- Release accelerator
- Wait about 3 minutes, then start normally.

that sequence sorted the issues in my wives f10 530d a treat, however i don't think you need to hold the pedal for more than a few seconds to initiate the reset.

I was getting a really jerky upshift from gears 2-3 after the car wheel spinned, apparently the adaptive settings got thrown out when this happens.

Anyway give it a go

I though that sequence was for the auto reset only, was DCT not pulling the 2 steering leavers for a few seconds with the car in neutral whilst driving

No DCT on the 6 series.

On a 2012 650i (F12) with a ZF8HP this did not work at all. I did this to try to resolve a jerky shifting issue, and this made no difference.

Have you had the Auto box serviced at all?

Yes I have. Approx. 1 week before trying that reset procedure. Trans filter + Oil + Adaptations reset by dealer.
