Hi new to this group, recently brought a E60 525d cars been great until yesterday. After setting off transmission fail safe warning came on no power & could only get to 40 mph. My brother reset the the fault code & car was was fine for 140 miles. Got in the car today after 1 mile another warning came up saying reverse gear might not engage. Turned car off for 5 minutes & warning went away. But reverse gear would not engage had to keep putting car in neutral & reverse to get it to go back!!!! HELP!!!! Any ideas???? Cheers
