IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity)

All Models with a GSM Telematics Control Unit (TCU):
  • MY2008 (effective 3/08 production) and later E60, E61, E63 and E64, including M5 and M6
  • MY2008 and later E70 and E71 with the ZPP Premium Package or stand alone option SA 639 (effective 4/08 production)

SITUATION
Model year 2008 and later vehicles produced 3/08 or later (4/08 for E9x SA, E70 and E71), except for the E65, E83 and E85, will operate on a GSM wireless carrier network, migrating from the current CDMA technology. This change requires a new identifier for the GSM TCUs, known as the IMEI, or International Mobile Equipment Identity, instead of the ESN or Electronic Serial Number, as used on the CDMA TCUs.

The registration of the ESN or IMEI for the new Telematics Control Unit is required during the DCSnet warranty claim entry process. The ESN field is renamed; it was called "New Electronic Serial Number (ESN)" and is now called "New Electronic Serial Number: ESN/IMEI". It will be modified to allow for input of either the ESN or the IMEI, as applicable.

This bulletin and the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) should address any issues that you may have about the new process. Please read this information, and circulate it to all personnel at your center involved in TCU repairs and claim submission.

TCU Service Actions (SI B84 18 03, B84 19 03, B84 01 04)

Continue to use normal warranty claim entry following all of the repair and claim submission instructions contained in the above bulletins.
