Mine was actually doing this after it was completely rebuilt.... Turns out the supplier of the rebuild components got ahold of a bad batch of shift solenoids! The new shift solenoids all were ohming out at 10.3 and 10.4 ohms. Book says these should be 15 to 17 ohms. My problem appears to be unique an not applicable to anyone else's situation, but went away when these three shift solenoids were replaced.

I have a decent OBD II code reader, but not the BMW one... What is the best way to obtain this capability as a DIY'er?

Keep in mind I just DIY'd removal and replacement of the trans/transfer case, starter, intake manifold, alternator... well, the whole right side of the engine really.... Replaced the oil separator valve & lines while I was there and resting
