My Ride: M3 vert e46 SMG
another SMG light thread :facepalm:
I am sorry to bother the forum with another SMG light thread, but here are the facts:
this morning I was driving in A3 and the SMG light came up on my dash.
I got the car just 3 weeks ago, and nothing came out during the PPI related to the transmission.
Bottom line, I tried to reset it today unsuccessfully performing the following:
1 - Disconnected the battery for 2 hours, the only thing that I manage to do is resetting the clock
2 - Resetting the SMG by going in N and pulling both flaps for more than 5s in a speed >80km/h, nothing happened, but now it shifts less harsher
3 - I invested 20$ and bought a new pink relay, nothing happened.
I must say that the car drives fine, if it wasn't for the light on that bothers me I would never feel any trouble.
On a side note, since I disconnected the battery my front windows only roll up with their own independent switch, but all 4 windows go down by pressing the common switch.
I just spent thousands to buy it, and I'm feeling pretty bad right now...
