Mein Auto: 1998 BMW 528i
1998 528i E39150,00 miles ABS, ASC light shift issues

My ABS and ASC light both came on at the same time after driving 11 miles.. The asc light would not turn off when depressed. Car operated fine the remaining 6 miles to work. When I started home the lights were not on at first. Before leaving the parking lot both lights came on again. This time when I started to leave the transmission would not shift from first gear. I came to a full stop and tried again, same results. I then shifted in 1 and accelerated slowly then shifted to 2, transmission shifted fine, then shifted to 3 and shift was good. I had to do this each time from a full stop. After I reach some speed placed in D and transmission shifted into the overdrive.I can start the car sitting in garage and no abs and asc light. After running for a few minutes both will came on. This is without the car moving. Also speedometer and tach work fine and no transmission limp indicator illuminated. Sorry for the lengthy description.
