The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

2005 645ci will not go into gear ( can anybody help please!!!!

Hello All,
I was wondering if anybody else have had this same issue. I bought a 2006 Convertible 645ci from the auction last week, the tires were on flat so I had the wrecker tow it to my house. I was able to start it and put it in reverse then drive to park in my garage.

Itís been sitting a couple of weeks so when I get into it yesterday to it starts fine but will not go into gear. The instrument panel only indicates the N for neutral although I am shifting the gear shifter into to reverse and drive nothing happens. Before I pay to have it towed to a shop can anybody tell me what this might be? Or if I can fix this issue myself? Iím thinking I may have to reset something or something like that

Is your battery bad? A bad battery can cause electrical issues in the computer. Is your transmission a manual, automatic, or SMG? You could maybe try a transmission reset. Search the forum on how to do a transmission reset.

Hydro Pump inside the transmission was out. I found a cerftified mechanic to replace just the pump for 1,700. I took it to the dealer and they quoted me 10,000 for labour and parts, of course they wouldn't replace just the pump they wanted to replace the whole unit around it as well as one piece. so guess who i went with...lol
