*Solved*

Having some serious issues with car in limp mode? after my coolant tube repair. Had a transmission fault and car will drive OK just doesn't have more than 2nd gear. So, I buy one of those k-line adapter cables from BCABLES and a Carly bluetooth adapter from Amazon.

Ok, so here is a little background before my woes:
Purchased the car from a friend a few months back knowing the transmission was out. My friend had the trans oil service done and the lines replaced, and a couple days it just quit on him. Actually what had happened I found out when getting it home was the trans oil line had partially come off the oil cooler, so I snap the line back on and fill the trans with fluid. Voila!
Ok, well the transmission never shifted perfectly but what the heck, it was fun to drive and I drive it a couple months, have an occasional Transmission malfunction error that goes away after restart.

Then the dreaded coolant pipe incident! So I stop the car after overheating and see That leak we all dread and tow her home. (I had already read up on this and had planned a future attack on the issue.) I figured while I'm in the engine, go ahead and replace the timing over gaskets, valve cover gaskets, spark plug tubes and a new water pump. My friend said the alternator was new so I left it alone. I had already installed new spark plugs a month prior as well and had just performed my first engine oil change. I also charged the new battery (NAPA Legend 75) at the battery terminals while the cables were off just as a precaution before firing it back up after the repairs.

So, after assembling the engine I flip the ignition switch to initialize the servos for the vct and whatever else needed to reset, actually I did this a couple of times and waited a minute between each (very cautious). The I fired her up. To my amazement, it actually started and ran OK, not perfect but OK. So I hook up the obd reader I had, grabbed a few cyl misfire errors and went back under the hood to replug all my sensors and coil packs. Smooth as butter idle! SO after warming it up, I decide to go for an easy spin around the block but the transmission malfunction came up when putting it in drive. oh no! I went ahead and drove it a very short distance thinking it would magically clear up. Seemed like it only had 2nd gear and would not accelerate much at all! Also tried manually shifting to no avail. So since I had already some transmission errors previously and the rough shifting, I decide to order some new solenoids, a Sonnax zip kit, four hose looking seals and transmission adapter seal that is recommended, and valve body separator plate.. Everything went smooth for that install, even the mechatronic sleeve wasn't too bad to remove or reinstall (didn't change it since it didn't leak). So after a fresh fluid refill, running it through the gears to ensure air bleed and warming the trans to spec per fluid level instructions, I try again. Still have the transmission error. So I try a drive again. Goes into gear a little hard in reverse but nice and firm engagements now. Still having the active steering and trans faults so I decide to buy the cable and Carly to reset everything. ughh No dice. The cable refuses to communicate with the car with INPA and the Carly does OK, I actually did some coding, battery registration on new battery I bought after purchasing car, and did a full diagnostic (after prior clearing the previous codes with my obd scan tool).I reset the faults and performed a second diagnostic to be sure. Below is my report, minus the German and insignificant stuff. Crazy stuff! No way can I have this many errors, didn't before the overheating issue with the odb scan tool. I suspected the battery (charged it some more after registration) and the alternator but battery seems to check OK with my multimeter. I did get a "Check battery cables" error after doing my diagnostic and driving the car to the end of the driveway as well (hence why I suspected the battery) but everything checks out OK?! Intelligent battery sensor? Cable left unplugged/not seated fully in ECU? Crankshaft sensor? Is there any advice someone can give? Where should I check? I'm at my wits end over this, and quite clueless even after scouring the internet an the forums for a hint/solution. Please Help!

Sorry, can't help, but thoroughly impressed with everything you've done.
Only advice I can give is maybe cross check / post in E60 and E65 forums. These cars have a ton in common with ours and I've found solutions there.

Thanks, I'll try that as well, and now curious about this IBS on the negative battery cable. Gonna check that tomorrow and see what's up. My suspicions are leaning towards voltage issues since everything worked well before my breakdown

Problem solved, one of the green plugs in the ECU box had come unplugged. WTF? lol Drives great now, tranny a little hard on the shifts and especially the 2-1 downshift but 500% better than it was. Chalking it up to a dumb moment/mysterious event.

It sounds like your fluid level is still just a little bit low. If you continue to get the failsafe warning, your Mechatronic Adapter is most likely hardened from old oxidized oil. The adapter is a 15.00 part, but the valve body needs to be dropped to access the adapter. You will always get misfires on the engine, after removing the fuel rails on the work that you did.

Thanks, I'll recheck the fluid level. The mechatronic adapter was changed when I did all that other work, albeit the part needed slight modification to fit up in there (dremel tools are great). Seems all the other faults are gone, just the steering fault and the hard shifts. Doesn't the active steering come off the transmission fluid?

The stabilization system is in with the power steering fluid. Active Steering I don't know, but would be strange to be on tranny. I don't know of any system that shares with the torque converter/transmission fluid.

is it behind the coolant reservoir? I drained that tank when doing my repairs, as it was necessary. Liked like thick engine oil so I saved it and put it back when I was done. Not sure what this thing is, the manual didn't really say.

It is over by the coolant expansion tank, round reservoir. It says Pentosin chf-11s on the cap. That is the power steering reservoir.

What kind of steering fault are you having? Did you have someone help you when you added the tranny fluid back in, it is very iffy if done by yourself. The steering fluid & the tranny fluid are on separate systems. If you are getting a transmission fault related to the steering, your fluid level is most likely very low in the steering reservoir. It does give that message, but it is very confusing to why it is stated that way. If the level is low enough to trip the level switch, it can effect quite a few modules. Good to see found your major problem, with a loose wiring harness connector.

bought 2 cans of pentosin PS fluid and topped off that tank behind the coolant tank. All is well! imagine that lol Will flush sometime this weekend, that stuff
looks nasty.

I did all the mechanical work myself, even removing and installing the intake manifold and filling the tranny fluid. I purchased a hand pump for the filling, might try my electric pump with a jerry rigged switch next time and run the hosethrough some fiberglass sleeve and over the exhaust pipe. There has to be a better way, thinking of making a new fill plug with a ball valve and hose fitting for easy fill and fluid check. Perhaps a metal pan with some modification like that to eliminate all the mess.

Thanks for the PDF, yes I filled it around 40-45C and it took a little more fluid. It still hard shifts and even at cruise it feels like it downshifts or stutters occasionally. I have no idea why it would do this unless it just needs a software update. I am guessing the torque converter is locking/unlocking? I never see the tach needle move when this happens. My 3-2 and especially the 2-1 downshift is a very hard clunk. The new solenoids made zero difference, nor the zip kit apparently, but once it gets going the shifts upward seem smooth and somewhat firm but not harsh. When I first start moving, it feels like it doesn't know to be in 1st or 2nd gear, then goes into 1st again and takes off normally, after a second or two delay. I hope I don't need a new transmission! Already sunk around $550 into it with parts and fluid.

Did you have someone help you run thru the gears while adding the fluid? A 1/2 pint off makes a big difference. When running thru the gears & the RPM's up, it sucks more fluid up in the system. The only other thing might be did you reset your adaptations after the work?

was driving Friday night and shifting mostly in manual mode, and all of a sudden the 3-2 downshift issue went away! Now everything is nearly perfectly fine :dunno: Did my solenoids learn how to shift? Maybe something in the vale body finally broke loose and became unstuck? The world may never know haha I am a proud owner finally after my purchase! Final repair bill, <$1000 No more coolant issues, minor transmission issues and the occasional increased emissions error. Now all I need to finish is my coding for the aux input to my radio and add some subs to the trunk and I'm a happy camper! Thanks to all that offered advise and guidance
