Dear members,

I am new to the forum and this is my first post, I have a 2008 528i BMW. Few days back within a minute from starting to drive the car on the way to work. I got a message in center console "Gear Malfunction" and a picture of the gear stick highlighted in Yellow.

I have spent couple of days trying to research this error on youtube, in google or user manual from BMW nothing mentioned. And was wondering if anyone has seen this error. I am trying to determine if this is something serious that require dealer to look into or something I can try to fix myself.

I have also driven the car trying to reproduce the error and take a photo of it but can not do that. The car is running normal, no unusual noise or any other actions.

Car is 10+ years but only has 54+ thousand miles

Thank you in advance for any help or pointers.

Muhi ...

Have you tried searching here?
The next step is to read the error codes, the car would of stored one.

The first step in diagnosing a problem is to scan the engine computer (DME in BMWspeak) and the automatic transmission computer (EGS) for codes. The Service Engine Soon (SES) light is on only when an emissions related code is present.
