Mein Auto: 04 BMW X3
Cool Transmission failure indicator light on, car moving slowly!

Just towed my 04 X3 from phx to Tx about 15 hours with a couple of overnighters. Anyway, I back the car off the dolly and start to drive but somethings not right, cars tranny's acting weird, pressing gas but responding well at all and I think I smell burning rubber, a little. I also notice the auto transmission failure indicator light is on as well. OMG What have I done? The manual said to put it in park, turn it off, apply hand brake, turn off few seconds, then restart. Said it should reset itself? really? Can anyone help, with this happening we are having to drive the 16ft penski rental truck w empty car dolly in Tx looking for hotel that allows pets. Are you kidding me. Any the worst part of it, it feels like Im in a freaking sauna. Im from Az and love the heat........... dry heat,,,,,, this is bullsht, humidity is insane, I hate walking from the house to your car and needing a shower. really?
