Electrical components: all models starting with E38

The proposed lexicon contains electrical components, which are shown on the electrical diagrams of diagnostics, with the corresponding symbols of these components.

The symbols correspond to the symbols on the electrical diagrams. Example: "A210" for the control unit "Rear door module on the passenger side".

The proposed lexicon contains about 2000 symbols.

 

This lexicon contains the following information:

 

- symbol (in alphabetical order)

- node

- information indication of the node description in SI System Description (SBT).

In the absence of a detailed description of the node in the column "Information" there is a brief description of the node.

- Constructive Group: functional group of the node.

 

For each designation and node, a functional group is indicated (only the main groups).

A list of functional groups is available in SI System Description (SBT) "Abbreviations".

- Series: a list of series in the electrical circuits of which there is this symbol.

 

Note: For the latest information, refer to the BMW diagnostic system.

 

This lexicon contains the legend of the nodes, which are shown in the following electrical diagrams:

 

  • DVD with electrical circuits "BMW V 5.0", as of 03/2005 (WDS: Wiring Diagram System).
    This DVD contains circuit diagrams for diagnosing BMW vehicles.
  • Circuit DVD "MINI V 3.0", dated 03/2005 (WDS: Wiring Diagram System).
    This DVD contains wiring diagrams for diagnosing MINI vehicles.

This vocabulary contains only the conventions used in the electrical circuits on both of these DVDs. Symbols that are found only in the lists "Information on nodes and signals" are absent in this lexicon.

 

Note: Conventional Series Conventions.

 

For technical reasons, some series are combined as follows:

  • E60 and E61
  • E63 and E64
  • E65 and E66
  • E83 and E85
  • E87 and E90
  • R50, R52 and R53

Therefore, it is possible that the symbol corresponds to the series, although the node on this series is missing.

 

List of conventions in alphabetical order

On the WDS-DVD (Wiring Diagram System), the symbols are listed in the "Information on nodes and signals" list in alphabetical order.

 

The list of systems by groups in the diagnosis

 

Note: For technical reasons, the windows shown below are not translated.

 

In the list of "Sites" windows available on the WDS-DVD, symbols and nodes are listed in alphabetical order.

For technical reasons, the windows shown below cannot be translated into the appropriate language.

 

 

The texts in these windows are explained in the accompanying texts.

The figure shows a list of nodes and signals on the WDS-DVD for E90

(WDS-DVD: Wiring Diagram System, i.e. DVD with electrical circuits for BMW diagnostics).

The "Nodes" section is shown in detail.

 

Note: "D" for "Diagnostic Interfaces".

The figure shows only the groups for the E90. for vehicles of other series, other groups may be shown. For example, group “D” for the following series: E39 and E53. For this group, the proposed lexicon has its own section.

 

Note: "P" for "Test Instruments".

Group "P" is available for the E52 series.

For this group, the proposed lexicon has its own section.

 

Note: "V" for "Semiconductor devices", "Diodes".

Group "V" is available for the following series: E38, E39, E46 and R50.

For this group, the proposed lexicon has its own section.

 Symbols are summarized in alphabetical order in the following groups:

A control units, modules

 

The illustration shows the DME control unit "A6000" for the N52 engine on the E90. (DME: digital electronic engine management system). The background is the electrical circuit for this symbol.

Note: Control units in the list of abbreviations

 

Many control units are already listed in SBT (SI System Description) “Abbreviations”.

Section "Abbreviations of the names of control units in diagnostics and programming."

These control units can be encoded and programmed.

These control units are shown in brief tests of the BMW diagnostic system (depending on the vehicle equipment).

 

Control units are often indicated by abbreviations. Moreover, in most cases, the abbreviation also refers to the system that the control unit controls (for example, the DSC control unit controls the dynamic stability control system).

 

Some abbreviations are borrowed from English. Some come from German meanings. Long forms are predominantly German names. However, these may also be English or marketing names.

 

This section contains those control units that are indicated by abbreviations in the diagnostic and programming programs.

Note: Updated version with legend

 

In the previous version, the symbols of the control units were also given. Symbols are shown on the wiring diagrams in the BMW diagnostic system: symbols are used as wildcards for unit names.

 

Note: Previous control unit reductions.

 

Since the start of mass production of the E65 (on-board network 2000), the names of the control units have been unified. There were differences in names with control units of earlier series. For technical reasons, these control units have not been renamed.

 

This is because these control units are shown in the BMW test brief of the BMW diagnostic system.

 

In the following table, previous abbreviations are given in the column “Value” opposite to the corresponding abbreviation currently used. For example, next to SVS (voice control system), the previous abbreviation SES (voice input system) is also indicated.

 

Currently, the following abbreviations are used for control units:

* = information with the next updated version

Typos, factual errors, and technical changes are possible.

As of: January 2007

The proposed list contains all BMW control units with the designation "A ..." (regardless of whether these control units are shown in short tests or in programming or not).

 

Note: Abbreviations for control unit names in brief tests.

 

In the brief tests of the BMW diagnostic system, as well as in Progman, all control units are shown as abbreviations. These abbreviations are shown in the following table in the "Information" column.

Each control unit is shown in a short test as an abbreviation.

Diagnostics of control units that do not have their own reduction is carried out by the master. These control units may have a self-diagnosis, but transmit possible error messages to the appropriate master. The BMW diagnostic system reads the records of these faults in the corresponding master.

 

Note: Some conventions are for technical reasons only.

 

Some symbols are not introduced for nodes, but for other symbols on the circuit diagram. For example, “A30” for “terminal 30” in the “Radio / Stereo” circuitry E52. Or the symbol "N52" is nothing more than a type of engine.

Such conventions make up half of this vocabulary.

 

Note: Cross references between conventions

 

Some conventions and nodes have the same functions, or relate to similar systems. However, for technical reasons, "hypertext links", that is, electronic links inside this lexicon are impossible.

 

To show the interconnection between several nodes and for that. In order not to bother the reader with frequent repetitions of similar texts, cross-references are marked as follows:

 

"-> see A123" means: The same information is valid for this symbol as for node A123.

"-> A123" at the end of the information points to another node from this system.

 

A: Control units, modules (more details...)

B Sensors, electrical converters

 

D Diagnostic Interfaces

 

E Lighting, electric heating devices

 

F Fuses

 

G Power supply, gas generators

 

H Acoustic and visual alerts

 

I Parts from BMW suppliers
