1994 BMW 740 iL Trans Program error

Hi Guys,

Could you guys advise me on correcting the error above?
When i start the car, the Trans Program error stays on.
Car drives sluggish during take off.
but will speed up when gears shift
Car has 192,000 miles
Owned car for 3 years
Trans fluid levels are fine.
Changed the MAF.
did not correct the problem

in the last 7 months, here is a list of all items i changed;
Cam & Crank Shaft Sensor
Fuel pump,
Fuel relay
throttle positioning sensor
Idle control valve
Changed plugs & all 8 Ignition coils
I get 1213 & 1215 when i do the stomp test.
Of no relevance to the issue above, this week i had to change the
ABS pump & Master cylinder

any assistance would be greatly appreciated


Thanks in advance

DC

Well.. doing a hard restart won't do a damn thing unless you have addressed, and cleared the codes.
since your communication is sh!t..
this is where people are usually disinclined to assist..
