When I shift into D the car goes to M2

Hey guy I have a 2008 335I. I removed the steering wheel trim to repair the peeling. Fixed it reinstall, test all the buttons and everything worked. Got in the car this morning to go to work and backed out the drive way and put it into drive going down the road I notice the car was in M2. but the shifter was in D. Tried the paddles and it will shift to M1 but that is it, won't shift back up, if I put the floor shifter in M it will not change. I can cut the car off and started it back up place the shifter in d and it show M2 again. I am going home at lunch to check fuses could I have mess something up in the steering wheel? any ideals?

At a guess, one of the paddle contacts is being "made" in the pull/upshift position. It thinks you're calling for an upshift immediately upon entering D, but never sees the contact break, so it won't push further than that. At a guess, it will go to M3 when you hit redline.

Not knowing what you did the the wheel makes it hard to diagnose over the net. As a "get me going" fix, I think taking the airbag off again (with ALL appropriate safety actions [battery cable off, etc.]) and unplugging the two connectors for the paddles within the steering wheel would let you (a) drive [with non-functional paddles] and (b) start looking for the closed contact with a VOM. Also check if one of the paddles is jammed in the pulled position.

Thanks you lead me in the right direction. The rubber from the steering wheel was pressing on the right paddle switch, not the paddle itself. Had to take the trim off a few times and push the rubber from the wheel down it was very soft. But now all is good again thanks for the insight.
