THERE ARE INCONSISTENCIES IN HOW BMW FACTORIES WIRE THE SHIFT KNOB ASSEMBLY. THIS MEANS THAT WHILE WE CORRECTLY MANUFACTURE OUR KNOB WIRE ASSEMBLIES, AN ERROR OR DIFFERENCE BY BMW WILL CAUSE OUR KNOB NOT TO CONNECT OR OPERATE PROPERLY. IF THIS IS THE CASE WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO CORRECT THE BMW FACTORY ISSUE.
Special Installation Note:
When installing, if wiring is unplugged from the various shifter harnesses and the vehicle door is opened, this may interrupt the P-BUS system and cause the parking lights to stay on for long durations afterwards. A P-BUS system reset my be required. It is best to reconnect all of the knob wiring before implementing any other electrical vehicle functions to avoid this interrupt.
