They are replacing the speed sensor on the trans as the speedo was not working and it seems to be erratic when tested.
I see in this thread others that this had solved the problem. I also have a problem with the ABS computer. Can this affect the transmission operation?
aj290 said:I just got the car back, they replaced the speed sensor part number 24151219659. Speedo worked for a bit then stopped, still starting in 3rd gear. We get the following codes:
130 signal ,CAN ACS1
217 signal , CAN EGS( OBDIIo600;EUIIIo600)
Chek Engine , Trans,ABS,ASC Lights on.
I am thinking of sending in the ABS control module to be rebuilt as this was the first set of lights that came on a while back. BMW wanted 900 bucks to fix it. Auto Ecu will do it for 289.00. CAn I drive the car without this module??
Also, is it true that you cannot clear all the codes in the computer memory? I was told by my trans guy that in some cases you need to take it back to the dealer to have the codes totally cleared. Thoughts?
From what I am reading in this thread this may be the root of my problems.
Please let me know your thoughts asap.
I have a similar problem. What fixed yours?
This happened to me on my 528 - last night (Aug 1, 2007) I had the same problem as you did last year - I am in Vero Beach and it rained very hard - think I may have slipped the tires, now the ABS lite is on and the car is in limp mode- not shifting well- what happened with yours? How did you fix it?
Any thing would be helpful!
Need some help. I have a 1999 528 i sport. Four lights come on the dash: Check engine, ASC ( the console button is not depressed), ABS, and a yellow star off the the right of the dash near the seatbelt light ( I have to look this light up in the owners manual). Now I checked the codes came up with 2 codes the first code is p0600 ( serial comm Link Malfunction) and P1747 ( transmission). What the car is doing is it starts up fine sometimes and goes then all the lights start to come on and the trans shifts into 3 or 4 or 5 gear on take off from a standstill. Anyone know what will give you a Serial comm link malfunction code? Or a transmission code? Is the car running in "safe Mode" if so why would it shift into high gear and stay there? I would really appreciate any help anyone could give. I am not able to find any good sites on problems and remedies with codes. Bringing my car to the dealer is not an option.
