01 740iL - Trans failsafe, service engine, abs

New to this site but hoping yall can help. Currently own a 2001 740il just reached 100,000 miles. Has been a great car until recently one day at the bank I put the car in reverse on an incline then put the car in drive all was fine will I pulled out. Gauge cluster died, trans failsafe message appeared car fell into limp mode and started running sluggish, abs light was present and brake light appeared briefly. Made it to the house and parked it, next day went out and started it trans failsafe message was gone and cluster was working however the service engine light was on. Had the codes pulled changed both cam position sensors along with having the battery and alternator checked, both of which are good. Now the car alternates between showing trans failsafe and abs along with cluster dying and cluster working with service engine soon... Im so lost at what to do next and any help would be great
