🧐 What is bimmerlink for bmw and mini and How does it work?
BimmerLink is the direct link to your BMW or MINI. Using one of the supported OBD adapters you can read trouble codes or display sensor values in realtime, check the current state of the DPF in your car or register a new battery after replacement. BimmerLink even allows you to remotely control the exhaust flap or mute the Active Sound Design in your car.
READ AND CLEAR TROUBLE CODES
Diagnose your car as would otherwise be possible only by your Service Partner. In contrast to generic OBD apps that read emission related errors only, BimmerLink allows you to read and clear trouble codes from ALL control units in your car.
DISPLAY REALTIME SENSOR VALUES
BimmerLink provides a big selection of values like oil temperature or boost pressure. Keep an eye on all the important parameters of your car with a personalized dashboard.
EXHAUST FLAP REMOTE CONTROL*
Take control over the exhaust flap in your car and decide yourself, whether it should be closed or open.
ACTIVE SOUND DESIGN**
If you do not like the artificial engine sound generated in your car, just mute the Active Sound Design with BimmerLink.
The “Sound Tuning” option allows you to disable the “exhaust burble“ in cars equipped with the S55 engine (M2 Competition, M3, M4).
BimmerLink allows you to check the current state of the diesel particulate filter in your car. Find out when the last regeneration took place or how much ash has accumulated in the filter and start a regeneration with the touch of a button.
If you want to replace the battery in your car, this has to be registered in the engine control unit and BimmerLink allows you to do this yourself now.
PARKING BRAKE SERVICE MODE
BimmerLink allows you to activate the service mode for the electromechanical parking brake.
Reset the service display in your car after carrying out maintenance work like a brake pad replacement or an engine oil change.
To use the app one of the supported Bluetooth or WiFi OBD adapters or cables is required. For more information please visit https://bimmerlink.app.
