I have a 1998 BMW 3.2 evolution tiptronic, I've recently had some issues with transmission fluid leaking and when the reservoir drops below a certain level the gearbox disengages and it's difficult to get the car to start, on this occasion I managed to get it started and got it home running on one gear (3rd) just a short journey. When I arrived at my destination I couldn't get it into neutral and had to turn the engine off, but the gearbox stayed in 3rd as the indicator on the front panel suggested. I have tried disengaging the battery for a period and re-engaging hoping that may reboot the computer but it's still stuck in 3rd. I have checked all fuses and did slightly top up the transmission fluid..... Has anyone experienced this type of problem before? If so please advise.
