2009 335i DCT Issues

I have been experiencing alot of problems with my car lately.. Dont know exactly what the problem is...

When I drive the car on D it wont shift properly.. When shifting from any gear to another it jerks and cuts power completely for about 4 seconds then power comes back and car takes off until the next gear change and same thing happens again.. A Light came on saying Transmission Fault..

When I took it to BMW Dealership they hooked it up to the computer and said two things.. Under transmission fault it states that the drivers chair is not plugged in.. the other problem is Footwell Module 2 states malfunction.. They tried deleting codes and however nothing changed... they ordered me a new Footwell Module however they dont know what could be messing the transmission...

Now when researching the footwell module it says that it mainly controls lights, power mirrors, and windows.. so I doubt it has anything to do with the problem.

The message under transmission fault states drivers chair missing.. now my drivers chair isnt working properly because I think one of the wire got torn while installing new subs.. however what does that have to do with the transmission failure !

Also would downpipes have anything to do with it? I installed new super sprint downpipes maybe a couple of weeks before it started having these issues

Has anyone ever experienced this type of lagging or jerking in his DCT?

I don't think your car has the DCT transmission unless it's a 335is and I think these (at least in the US) were only available starting in 2011.

I think you are right that the seat issue should not be causing transmission problems but you never know with modern cars and their complicated electronics. There could be a relationship between the two. You'll obviously know more once the set module is replaced.

Congratulations to all in Egypt on your fight for Democracy!

"2010 M35i (Complete M3 with Tuned Twin Turbo inline 6)" <-- haha... maybe you do have a DCT after all, considering you apparently bought a complete M3 and replaced the V8 with a tuned I6?

And the title says 2009, but your sig says it's a 2010

Alll the 335s all over the world, except the United states of America have the option for DCT.... Please inform yourselves, and don't be so blindly righteous about something you don't know about...

We American's

We are self righteous, self obsorbed, all knowing American people, what are you talking about There is no DCT option to us except the 335is regardless and doesn't exists anywhere else, there is only the United States of America! I heard this for a fact on Fox news! Its a conspiracy, the Germans are trying to take over the car industry according to Glen Beck!

We must conquer this other place called Germany and take over this thing called DCT. It's the new administrations doctrine says Hannity.

Galal, I don't think anyone here knows what is wrong with your car. Unless a BMW service tech posts, I think you'll have to work with your dealer.
