Transmission fault mode
Took my 750LI 2006 to the dealership concerned about a "kick" in the transmission while shifting. They recommended a software update. Wehn done I took it for a drive with the tech and within our first few minutes , I noticed that the kick has gotten rougher. Soon after the warning light came on indicating a fault in the transmission and put it in a safe mode. Took it back in and after running a scan, they said it needed a new transmission. I left the dealership very frustrated, went home and came back the next morning to pick it up with an intention to sell it as is, due to the disappointment. I asked them to clear the fault code, and drove off with the car after I paid what I owed. Surprisingly the car has been running normal for the last three hours which compelled me to consult other technicians. Some beleive it could be a sensor problem missreading data which caused it to go in safe mode. If tran was bad how would it run normal afterwards?? Any suggestions?? I could not beleive than were going to make spend about 10K for something that wouldn't have been necessary. It still kicks but still running. Any suggestion???
