Change your speed sensors....mine had the abs , brake and check engine light "trifecta" and it would onlyshift manually. Changed the speed sensor and it fixed it all. You jave a sensor on you front passenger wheel and rear driver. The front passenger afects shifting and rear affects speedometer. You can find them on ebay for 20.bucks, but most suggest going oem for around $80-$100. Ive been pefectly happy , so far, with my cheap ebay sensors .

Stop throwing/replacing random parts on your car. You need to find the root of the problem. Have a good BMW Indy shop or the $tealer to read the error code. Search "trifecta" threads if you hve ABS/DSC/BRAKE lights lit amber together.

I had the same issue on my 1999, ended up being the abs module, had to send it over to the authorized Bosch dealer to have them fixed for like $200-300.
