: 525i 91 transmission can't start

12-22-2008, 11:19 PM
When I was driving, check engine light turned on, then panel showed "transmission" problem. I stopped it, turned it off and then tried to restart but failed. I can't start it any more:cry:

I can feel the starter tries to turn on, makes a little bit noice but then fails.

One more thing is: I turn on the radio, but after 5 seconds it powers off by itself and then turns on again, and off and on... it keeps on and off...

any idea what is the problem?

Start with a check of the battery. If that checks out move to the alternator.

Yes! you are right. Battery checked, is OK, but no charging, so it is the problem of alternator!

Now a new alternator is being replaced, hope it backs to work after a while.

thanks again for the reply.

Have a wonderful holidays!
