Hi,
My 528i 2013 LCI have drivetrain error message today. The engine is jerking when stationary. This error message appreared after using sport mode. Do you encounter this problem? My friend told me it could be plug issue since I seldom drive the car.

I am sending my car to service center on Monday.

Thank you.

I had the same error message previously, the cause was due to loose turbo hose. Resolved by using cable tie to keep it in place. Hope you manage to solve yours without much damage

This is a very vague error message on idrive and could mean a million things. I would suggest you to visit the workshop or service center and get it diagnosed.

It's the 2nd time I got this Drivetrain Error message.  It only happens whenever I'm using Sport Mode and hit 180km/h.  When on Comfort mode, no such error.  My mechanic can't tell the problem as it doesn't happens all the time and the error message disappear once you restart the car.  Anyone with same issue and how you resolve this?

Maybe it's the car telling you that you are putting your life and that of others in danger by driving so far over the speed limit??

If the mechanic is not able to replicate the issue, ask him to review the error log. Error log would have show when it happen, and what was involved. For this, the mechanic has to use a much more competent software/diagnostic tool, and not the simple scanner.
