trans failsafe prog.

This sounds totally like an alternator issue. After the drive the battery was dead. When my alternator failed, I has the ability to fully charge the battery.

Liquid cooled

Isn't the Alternator on a E39 540i liquid cooled? Did you need to drain the coolant?

540i Water Pump

My radiator fan has a rock in the base and I am losing minor amounts of coolant. When running, the fan makes a knock. I believe this is the water pump going bad. Any ideas?
