    Let me start off by saying I've done A LOT of searching and can't seem to come to any conclusion based on my specific issues as they pertain to the codes and errors I seem to be experiencing. I know this seems like a common issue and I've gone through tons of feeds on transmission issues but...

    I was driving the other day on some bumpy roads and all was well. I parked and went into a business and when I came back and started up the ABS, BRAKE, DSC and Transmission-failsafe lights were on. It has kicked into Failsafe mode and won't re-set like the manual said it might with turning off...

    I just purchased a 98' 540i in march and already my transmission has failed me. It went into fail safe mode and i took it to the BMW place and they just told me my transmission was gone and it would be 12k to replace it. Im definitely not doing that and I wanted to know would it be cheaper to...

    I know there are many threads on this topic but no one seems to say whats the root cause and what to do to fix it. Im leaning towards alternator and the tranny control module but not sure where to start. I checked the battery on the car and the voltage was perfect. This problem is intermittent...
