The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 was a hybrid that had its concept first shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show before being formally introduced to the market in 2012. It was given a synchronous electric motor which was integrated into the housing of the automatic gearbox. The engine parts depended on a turbocharged 3.0L inline 6-cylinder to provide the power and the electric motor was able to offer 40 kW and 150 lb-ft of torque. The lithium battery had a capacity of 1.35 kWh, and it had its own independent cooling system for better performance. The electric-only mode of the hybrid car could go up to 60 km/h and was claimed to be capable of a 4 km ride and had a start-stop system and a coasting mode for safety and an easier driving experience. The vehicle had been determined to have reduced fuel consumption and emissions by more than 10%. Overall, this vehicle had great power for being electrical and was environmentally sound.
The 2012 F10 535 ActiveHybrid 5 vehicles have reported several issues related to their hybrid systems. One commonly reported issue is the appearance of a "Hybrid system malfunction" message upon starting, even when the vehicle seems to operate normally and the electric drive works without problems. Diagnostic scans typically indicate potential problems with the High-Voltage battery, but some suggest that the standard battery's condition might be a more significant factor. Another prevalent concern is the High Voltage System Fault warning that can force the car into a limp mode, requiring a restart. Diagnostics have revealed that this fault can disable the valvetronic and might sometimes be related to software issues, as some reported resolving it with a software update. Additionally, a fault code, 21F09B, has been identified in the 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 models, indicating that Cell block 6 of the high voltage battery has a temperature below normal, leading to occasional drivetrain errors and AC turn-offs. Upon investigation, this fault code could suggest an internal defect in the hybrid battery, which might necessitate its replacement. It is emphasized that any replaced battery needs proper coding to the vehicle for correct operation. The solutions for these issues range from inspecting the standard battery, software updates, to possibly replacing the hybrid battery based on specific symptoms and diagnostic results.
