Problems / Re: Transmission Failsafe
« on: Today at 09:47:37 AM »
Well, I thought I would try and explain what I have done to cure!! the problem.
On the advise of Henry3 I bought a good code reader ( Autel Maxidiag Elite MD802) , but it did not throw up any fault codes for the Trans Failsafe).
Sod it , so I have now adopted the following start procedure which works every time.

To start : key in ignition, turn to 1st position, select Neutral with trans selection lever (gear stick) and then start car, works every time, NO Trans failsafe on panel.

I know I may be missing something, but this system works everytime, Road speed is fine( had legal limit +60)
so any ideas out there.
Battery is fine, 2years old.
Have just done 2 x 320m trips in last week, no probs.

Pelican Parts do a brilliant ' how to' on most BMW's cars, with photo pictures on step by step guides.
It is an American site, but still the same except lhd.
Have recommended this site for the past 3 years.

I must admit that when I bought my 4.4 litre E53 the last thing on my mind was fuel consumption, but I knew that I could alleviate to a certain extent the pain.
So I lpg'd the car well pleased, and I donot like diesel , dirty horrible stuff !!

Brilliant write up, thoroughly enjoying this, almost as good as a Cornwell Novel.
