Mein Auto: x5 2004 3.0d
error code 5088 20616 gear choice setting sensor wrong

I have bmw 2004 x5 3.0D running auto 6hp26

The other day I was turning into a new street and as I went to accelerate it dropped into neutral even though I was still in D. I put it in neutral and back to D still no forward movement. Then went into reverse and it backed up ok, into drive and away I went. 5 mins late it happen again and went into transmission fail safe mode. switch offed and restarted all good. Auto seems to change all good so suspecting electrical issues

Got home put tester on it and got code

5088 EGS sensor, transmission switch L1-L4
5087 EGS one touch gearshift or M gate switch

Any thoughts on what to do next ? Is this sensor in gearbox or on shifter ?
where do i start?
cheers
