Here is how the BMW Remote Diagnosis feature works

Date Published: December 9, 2020

Technology is constantly being integrated into modern cars. Modern cars are becoming more and more high-tech everyday, making our daily lives easier.

An example of this is the new BMW remote diagnosis feature, a new option introduced on cars fitted with iDrive 7 OS. If there is an error with your BMW, this can now be diagnosed from a distance.

How it works

If you have connected your BMW to the internet, a representative from BMW can remotely connect to your car and check for any faults and advise you on what to do.

Unlike back when your car would unexpectedly have an error, you would have to drive your car to the repair shop to connect it to a diagnosis tool to see what was wrong.

The BMW remote diagnosis is a convenient way of finding out if your BMW has an error. The BMW Remote Diagnosis helps you identify whether your car is still safe to drive.

Do I still have to go to the repair shop?

Yes, you still have to go to the repair shop to get your car repaired. However, the BMW remote diagnosis feature allows you to save time because the technician can pre-order the parts needed before you even get there.

 This way, the time that your precious car spends at the dealer is reduced and you can spend more time with your car!
