Automatic transmission (АТ) *

Adaptive control system (AGS)

 


Automatic transmission of your car is equipped by an adaptive control system (AGS) which is thin reacts to style of your driving and road conditions. Thus the certain program of a gear change automatically gets out.

The system counts the most comprehensible order of a gear change, considering thus set of factors. Your individual style of driving and road conditions is taken into consideration.

Style of driving AGS defines, estimating position and speed of movement of a pedal of an accelerator, delay at braking and the cross-section accelerations influencing the car on turns. - from exclusively comfortable to focused on the maximum use of possibilities of the car - system AGS chooses the most suitable from four various variants in the present state of affairs.

The system registers turns, liftings and biases. At passage of turns at great speed it, for example, does not make switchings on the raised transfers. On liftings switching on the raised transfers is carried out only on high turns of the engine that it is better to use it мощностные possibilities. On descents the system makes switchings on hill-climbing gears if registers increase in speed of the car and pressing of a pedal of a brake.

Possible positions of the lever of selector AT:

P R N D 3 2 1

 


Engine start

Engine start is possible only in the event that selector AT lever is in position Р or N.

Change of position of the lever of selector AT


On the forward party of the handle of the lever of selector AT is available (it is shown by an arrow), the button of blocking preventing erroneous transfer of the lever of the selector in positions R and R.Dlja of removal of blocking press the button.

Before inclusion of transfer of a forward course (transfer of the lever from position Р or N) press the brake pedal, otherwise the lever remains motionless.

The brake pedal should be held pressed up to the moment of a start of motion as if one of transfers is included, the car slowly will move even idling.

If you wish to leave the car, without switching off the engine translate selector AT lever in position Р or N and tighten a lay brake. Otherwise probably spontaneous трогание the car from a place. Never leave the car with working engine without supervision as it is a potential source of the raised danger. At erroneous transfer of the lever in position N at movement on high turns at once dump gas. Wait, while the engine will not reach idling turns and after that translate the lever in the necessary position. Otherwise because of too high turns probably damage of the engine.

Р - lay position

Include only after a full stop of the car. Driving wheels are blocked.

R - backing transfer


Include only after a car stop.

N - neutral position


Include only at long breaks in movement.

D - the basic mode of movement with an automatic gear change


This position corresponds to a normal mode of movement. All transfers of a forward course are automatically switched. System AGS functioning is not limited absolutely not.

3 - the sports program


At such position of control lever АТ system AGS uses exclusively sports program. АТ makes switchings before 4th transfer.

2 and 1 - movement on mountain roads and in a mode of braking by the engine


Include for restriction of number of working transfers, for example, on steep slopes or descents in mountains. Switchings are carried out automatically, however only before the chosen limiting transfer.

Position 2 thanks to corresponding selection of transfer numbers especially conveniently at trailer towage.

Mode of the maximum acceleration with transfer fall (“Kick-Down”)

The given mode provides possibility of the maximum acceleration and achievement of the maximum speed in position D of the lever of selector AT. Press a pedal of an accelerator with transition for position of full gas. There should be thus passed a point of the raised resistance.

Possible indication

 


P R N D S3 S2 S1

Electronic control system of a gear change

If the control lamp it testifies to malfunction in gear change system lights up.

Thus possibility of transfer of the lever of selector AT in any of positions remains, however at inclusion of a forward course the car will move only on 3rd or 4th transfer.

Avoiding the raised loadings, it is necessary to reach to the nearest HUNDRED BMW.

Works in подкапотном space in no event cannot be spent at control lever installation to movement position.

Rules of start of the engine from the external accumulator, and also towage and movement on a tow are resulted in Razdele Poddomkrachivanie and towage.


Automatic transmission with system Steptronic*

In addition allows to use and a manual gear change.

For a manual gear change translate control lever АТ from position D to the left on line М/S. Thereby you make active sports programs of a gear change. A lever contact in a direction “+” or “-” you give a command to system Steptronic on transfer switching. If you wish to return to an automatic mode of a gear change translate the lever to the right in position D.

Automatic transmission Steptronic is equipped by an adaptive control system (AGS), described above.

Possible positions of the lever of selector AT:

P R N D M/S

 

Engine start

Engine start is possible only in the event that selector AT lever is in position Р or N.

Change of position of the lever of selector AT


On the forward party of the handle of the lever of selector AT is available (it is shown by an arrow) the button of blocking preventing erroneous transfer of the lever of the selector in positions R and R.Dlja of removal of blocking press the button.

Before inclusion of transfer of a forward course (transfer of the lever from position Р or N) press the brake pedal, otherwise the lever remains motionless.

The brake pedal should be held pressed up to the moment of a start of motion as if one of transfers is included, the car slowly will move even idling.

If you wish to leave the car, without switching off the engine translate selector AT lever in position Р or N and tighten a lay brake. Otherwise probably spontaneous трогание the car from a place. Never leave the car with working engine without supervision as it is a potential source of the raised danger. At erroneous transfer of the lever in position N at movement on high turns at once dump gas. Wait, while the engine will not reach idling turns and after that translate the lever in the necessary position. Otherwise because of too high turns probably damage of the engine.

Р - lay position


Include only after a car stop. Driving wheels are blocked.

R - backing transfer

Include only after a car stop.

N - neutral position


Include only at long breaks in movement.

D - the basic mode of movement with an automatic gear change


Corresponds to a normal mode of movement. All transfers of a forward course are automatically switched. System AGS is in working order.

Mode of the maximum acceleration with transfer fall (“Kick-Down”)


The given mode provides possibility of the maximum acceleration and achievement of the maximum speed in position D of the lever of selector AT. Press an accelerator pedal for position of full gas. There should be thus passed a point of the raised resistance.

М/S - The Manual mode and the sports program

 


At transition from mode D in mode М/S the sports program to what occurrence of letters SD on the indicator of the chosen program of a gear change testifies becomes more active. System AGS uses only such program schedules which are focused on the most sports style of driving. АТ it will be switched only before 4th transfer.

At the first contact of the lever there is switching АТ from the sports program on a manual mode.
If you translate the lever forward and a direction “+” the box is switched to the raised transfer, and while translating the lever in a direction “-” it is switched to a hill-climbing gear.

On the indicator of the chosen transfer it is highlighted М1... М5.

Switchings on raised or hill-climbing gears are carried out by system AGS only at corresponding turns of the engine, that is, for example, switchings on hill-climbing gears at too high turns of the engine are not made. On a control panel for some time there is an indication of the chosen transfer. At consecutive performance of several switchings for short time inadmissible transfer is highlighted chosen by last. Then on indication the transfer included at the moment is deduced.

At movement in a manual mode for acceleration from 4th or 5th transfer at low speed - for example, at overtaking - switching on a hill-climbing gear should be carried out manually or with function use “Kick-Down”.

Switching with M/S on Р, R, N is possible only through position D.
