Question about 1993 BMW 7 Series
When the TRANS PORGRAM light comes on the transmission is very sluggish. Transmission was rebult 3 years ago. The sensors are the original sensors when the car was made. Should they be replaced?

You need a code reader. It does sound more like an electrical prob than a trans failure you could rebuild the whole trans and it just does it again. Invest in the full shop manual including the electrical one. I would get on the BMW fanatic forumns,

IT'S VERY EASY TO RESET THE TRANSMISION'S COMPUTER. HOLD GAS PEDAL DOWN. TURN THE KEY TO THE NUMBER TWO. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE GAS PEDAL DOWN FOR THIRTY SECONDS.RELEASE THE GAS PEDAL AND PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL FOR TEN SECONDS. NOW YOU CAN TURN THE VEHICLE ON. THAT SHOULD TAKE IT OUT OF SAFE MODE

You will need to be able to scan the car and read the faults, but it sounds
like maybe the shift module on the side of the tranny is not sending the
Park or Neutral message to the DME so the car does not know that it can
start because it needs to see that the car is in park or neutral to be
able to start, but you really need to be able to scan the DME or the EGS
to be able to know.
1. Try the Reset but you may need to disconnected the + and - cables together of few minutes to clear all memory
2. Check for damaged wire on the tranny or leaking
3. Change the tranny fluid and filter
4. Take it to the dealer or a well equipped BMW shop that can pull tranny codes.
