    I've tried searching but I can't quite find a similar problem to mine... I've bought the above car today (M50 engine). I didn't realise when I bought it that the transmission programme error light is illuminated as the display is a little pixelated, but it is! Driving normally, the transmission...

    Hello all, I am aware that this question has been posted on here multiple times, but after searching for hours I can't find anyone who has had the same issue or a solution to my issue! So a few days ago I decided to replace the plastic rim on my steering wheel. I disconnected the battery via...

    Please Halp! So I've just bought this 840 mentioned in another thread, the OBC is showing a "trans fail-safe prog", BUT there are no error codes showing and the car runs great. The garage it's at have started looking into it, but have found that the wiring into the 'gearbox display selector...

    Hi All, Just bought a 2001 X5 with the "TRANS FAILSAFE PROG" error, drives fantastic for a short time then the error pops up and goes into limp mode. Had a look around at what could have gone wrong and I don't think i've seen this issue posted: When the error pops up you can smell burning -...

    Hey all, new here. Had a question, How does one go about a trans fluid replace when both fill and drain plugs are both on the bottom of the pan? Does the fill plug create vaccum while running? Any help would be very appreciated. Ps: Anyone with the other model pan is a lucky man.

    I left the 850 for a month connected to my CTEC charger, as I normally do, but the charger packed in and when I came home both batteries were totally discharged. I recharged them both, but when I stated the car I very soon had trans fail alarm. The RPM on idle was low compared to normal and when...

    Having spent weeks Googling this accursed MID message, I'm well aware that I'm far from the first sufferer (either in E31 land or further afield in the BMW kingdom). Briefly (yeah, right): The car spent the first six months (that's correct) of this year at a specialist, emerging with (most...
