This morning I was backing out to go to work and when I went from reverse to drive and car went into transmission failsafe and went into park and now I can't go into gear at all had to engage the emergency gear release to move it out street. Obd code was p0966 transmission pressure control solenoid b low circuit. How much am I looking at on repair with parts and labor thanks

Transmission Won't Engage

2006 750i with 160k+ won't go into gear...searched for commonality and first response is the solenoid. Anyone have success with replacing the solenoids?

Yeah I just had mines changed this past Monday I was getting a low circuit code for my one of my solenoid so I bought the solenoid kit and had them all changed out now problem fixed. Does your car go into transmission failsafe mode?

Response to Trans Failure-Certifizel3

It won't stay in gear...the dash lights stayed on as a nuisance according to what I've learned from this site of 750 owners...I tried discon the battery to reset...no go...now I've been told a new trans, since no one will sell just the TCU module...new trans only...$3k plus

Did you mean the TCM? Not TCU? Have you seen this?

Have you contacted this company for the availability of the part?

At the end of this video might be a source for the TCM.
