Question 1999 E46 323i Auto Transmission

Hi looking for help, I had a rebuilt transmission and torque converter installed 18mths ago all was fine until I took it to the local BMW to get the ABS and SRS warning lights fixed along with a full service, they also updated the software. Since then the car has started going into limp mode with the following fault codes
049 Symptom gear chech
054 Gear check 4
048 Torque converter clutch too much slip
053 Gear check 3

I would start by getting under the car and checking for damaged wiring or a disrupted electrical connector on the transmission or wiring harness leading to it.

Sounds like something went wrong on the flash they did. I would suspect they coded it for the wrong trans as a blind guess.
