Mein Auto: 1999 BMW 740i Sport
Exclamation 99 740i Sport Engine Failsafe Prog

I bought this car a few weeks ago, i literally pay the guy and get 10 minutes down I 75 in the middle of mid day Atlanta traffic and entire electrical system shuts down.. So, obviously a new battery and alternator was a must, prior to putting the new alternator in i was getting a "Trans Failsafe Prog". Naturally i thought the new battery and alternator would soothe my new ride's heart stopping demands.. After my local "BMW specialist" installed the new battery and alternator (and i mean RIGHT AFTER the new parts were installed) I am immediately greeted with "Engine Failsafe Prog", the throttle completely gone.. revs up to around 1800 RPM and back to 0, just back and forth back and forth... I need some sound solid advice on what to do and what to look for, its starting to feel like my dream car has became a nightmare. HELP. Thanks
