  1. General BMW Questions
    Long story short- The shifter on automatic transmissions has unpredictable behavior. Full story: When I go to the car wash and need to shift to neutral in my 2020 330i automatic transmission, I can never reliably shift into N. If i just push the shifter forward one click, nothing happens. If I...

  3. X5 G05 (2019 - Current)
    So often I'll need to move the car literally a few feet downhill to make some room for workspace. I cant find ANY way to shift this damn thing into neutral. On previous models you'd access a neutral switch under the cup holder using a special tool and the key. I've called the dealership where I...
  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I could really use some help on this. My mechanic is stumped, I am running out of money, and there is no clear path forwards. I have an e65 BMW Alpina B7 with about 90,000 miles. As I understand, it has a similar ZF transmission to the other E65 745i and 750i cars, but has a heavier duty...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello everyone. I have a BMW 528i. When I move the stick (automatic) to Drive, Neutral, or Reverse, it sits in the new position for about 3 seconds then resets back to Park automatically. Even during the short period it is in the new gear, it doesn't move when the gas is hit. I can tell the...
  6. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    Anyone else had car shut down & displaying ABS/drivetrain/chassis stability lites? The 3 lights (ABS/chassis stability/drivetrain) on my car lit up after it put itself in neutral (and the screen told me it had put itself in neutral) at a traffic light. It shut off. I got it restarted, and that...
  7. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    So, after my car was at the dealership for 5-1/2 weeks for the "customer car package" (aka, it's not a recall, really), I had it for a couple days, then today while at daycare picking up my son, I went to start it and it binged and said "ignition fault" and wouldn't start. Absolutely nothing...

  9. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    We have just embarked on replacing the SMG pump on an '03 E46 M3 equipped with BMW's Semi Manual Gearbox. The vehicle was experiencing a loss of gear both at cruising speed and when embarking from a stand still position. The car has just over 100,000 miles on the clock, and it appears that the...
  10. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    2007 750li - Hello all. First post here but have been going through the threads for the past few months as I have been having the Transmission Fault and the car Slipping into N and the engine dying. Seems like this is fairly common. Last month I went to 2 different dealers and 2 different...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, I decided to start a new thread rather than highjacking another one. When I put my E90 on neutral in the morning and let it roll down my driveway, it will move very slowly, while every other car (small or large) will move farther and faster then my BMW. Anybody knows the reason? I asked...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi My 523 from 1998 with manual gear shift is acting up. When the car is cold, the gear shifter does not return to the normal neutral position between 3rd and 4th. Instead it rest in the right most position, just below 5th. When driving for more than 15 minutes it suddenly starts returning to...
