"Repeat Gear Selection" Warning Light
 
Hello everybody, I recently had to remove my air filter compartment to replace one of the small headlight bulbs on the front passenger side. Once the bulb was put in, I re-installed the air filter compartment but now my car is showing a "Repeat Gear Selection" Warning Light almost every time my car comes to a stop.

Anybody know what the cause might be?

thats happened to me, but only occassionaly! if its happening as often to you, then something is really wrong.......it could be the start of transmission related problem and if ur under warranty take it to the dealer and seek some solutions quickly!

I am about to change my microfilter myself and reset the warning sign through IDRIVE. Last thing I need is a malfunction with my transmission. If someone can elaborate on this in detail I would like to know.

My 03 started that also and guess what, it started to run the battery down if it sat more then 3 days.. took to dealer they found a bad park switch in the leaver that you move to get to drive and park it also showed a falt in the SZL too.. what he told me was the car was not going to sleep because of the problem with the park switch being bad so new park leaver and SZL and a reprogram that took care of the Repeat Gear Selection problem..:thumbup:

What's an SZL?

I wasn't having this problem until removed the air filter compartment to replace a headlight bulb. My instincts are telling me that I might not have re-inserted the air filter compartment the proper way and something within that realm is causing the issue. But with that said, I have no idea where to begin with the diagnosis.

OMG!!! Im having the same exact problem. the battery runs down etc. Repeat gear selection is haunting me. I changed trans fluid after it took it the dealer they said it is probably low. I changed it and same problem. REPEAT GEAR SELECTION. I have 03 760LI

Did you find anything else out? I just changed fluid today.

i bought the parking lever adn im going to replace it this weekend. I hope the SZL is good. That is a dealer only item that is expensive./

how much did that gear switch lever cost??

Ok, now when we say "gear switch lever" we are talking about the actual thing in the cabin? Right? Nothing in the transmission...right? I have this issue now "repeat gear selection" and I am going to try replacing the lever in the next few days.
