transmission problem

hello , this is my first thread:
today in my shop came a 728i that have a strange tranny problem which is the car shifts good in revers but when you select drive position the car wont drive and when you shift over to M mode drives good and you can select 1,2,3,4,5 gears upwards and downwards smoothly and it drives great so i hooked it up with a diagnostic device and it said (6a- stall-speed monitoring)??
any ideas for the fix
