the mechatronics could do this, yes, but it could also be low fluid, an internal fluid leak or even an issue with the shifter.
if you replace the unit it should be updated, yes..Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
when the problem first started it was very intermittent, then it began to happen more frequently, then i had to start pressing the shift lever multiple times to make it shift. This only applies going into drive, not reverse. Does this help to narrow down my problem or is there anything else i can do to help narrow it down?
unfortunately this does not narrow down the issue. to further narrow it down you would need to invest in a proper diagnostic with a factory BMW scan tool at a dealer or properly equipped BMW specialist shop. unfortunately such equipment is required to diagnose an issue like this.
