GWS code A82E interlock fault

hi all

i have a X5 2009 diesel E70
since a month ago it wont go into Sport mode or manual
it drives in D also reverse and park in no problem

the code it says is :A82E

its the GWS thats all i can find on it , i have bought a used one that i have seen it works , but when i install it in my X5 it still aint working, i have watched youtube of people just replacing them and it works fine in the vids
but my question is : does the GWS needs to be programmed by the stealership ?

or could it be something else

thnx all for your help and input

I have the same problem and will be fixing it myself.

The "proper fix" is replacing the $960 gear selector switch. (plus prob $150-250 labor at a dealer).

The part that failed is the $5 motor that turns an offset wheel that does two things: interlock to lock out sport mode and push the stick out of sport mode when you go to park without manually moving the selector knob right.

My first goal is to take the "gear suggestion box" (I call it that because it's entirely shift by wire; moving the knob only hits micro switches that suggest gear changes to the computer; it only makes the shift if the computer approves)

Anyhow there's a motor very similar to the motors that lock the doors and it's failed.

Sadly it's failed in the "locked out" position. If it failed in the "sport allowed" position you'd just have to manually move back out of sport to shift out of park.

Once I take apart the gear suggestion box I'll see if I can find the exact motor used and source one if possible to replace it.

Until I do, I plan to "unplug" the motor and manually turn it to the unlocked position so I can move the selector suggester left.

I will absolutely post pictures. I've watched the YouTube teardown videos it's 4/10 difficultly. (To tear down). I'm expecting 6-7/10 difficulty to actually disable the motor and set it in the unlocked position. 7/8 difficultly to actually swap over the motor brushes.

Their is a chance the problem is stripped gears not motor brushes but 95% chance it's the motor brushes just like the door lock actuator. (which I've replaced 5-6 sets on e53 turning $235 off brand part into $12 keep the OE part and repair (each door so 852 savings)

You said you confirmed the used one works? If you didn't clear the code it won't try to release the E interlock (e must mean sport in German).

Did you hear motor buzzing sounds in the original GWS? That's what mine did just before it died. Crazy thing after months it came back to life for one day. Yesterday! That was a lot of fun for one drive!

So: clear the code. If the motor for e interlock doesn't respond you can't clear the code.

I'm not sure about coding. My scanners did not show an option for it. Wife's got e70 also and I was considering swapping to see if coding is required.

Do you still have the original? I would love to be able to pull apart a not in use copy to find that motor info before I deactivate my car to do it.

Mine worked for a day a week ago. I definitely made the most of that day. I will be pulling the shifter out to revamp that motor and will make a thread showing how to fix the $960 part for $6-8

Did you end up tearing down the gearshift selector and fixing it ?

I ended up swapping with a car that was totaled.

I found a video of a teardown though from a guy that fixes them.

My phase one was going to be turn the gear by hand until it was set for sport allowed and then I'd just have to manually move out of m/s.

The swap was painless, took about 15-20 minutes including putting the broken one info the host car. They were about $300 on eBay at the time which was my motivation to repair. I'm sure they use a similar motor as the DLA so I was prepared to do the motor swap but I ended up not needing to do it.

Are you saying you had to code the used gear selector into your X5?
What was involved?

Four screws and a cable plug. Plug n play no coding.

Both cars had 8 speed.
