SOURCE: BMW X5 Trans Fail Safe Program,

sometimes it will clear if you turn the X5 off and restart it. however, it could be an early indication that the tranny is about to expire. i have had it happen and it cleared with a power cycle, but also had friends where it cleared for a few weeks/months and returned. this time it was really the transmission that went bad. if you can't get it to clear, then i'd suggest taking it to the dealer and have them plug into it to have a better look.

The engine fail safe program light came on in my BMW X5 2006 and now the car won't start ...can It be reset?


Depends why the Failsafe was triggered. Read the codes would be a good way to start. Anyway, since the car wont start, it may be the crankshaft position sensor, which will cause a trans failsafe and prevent the car from starting.

Check for other codes. A crank position sensor failure will cause a Trans fail and could prevent the engine from starting.

How to reest trans fail safe mode 2005 bmw x5 3.0 litre diesel


Have to have the transmission problem diagnosed

Best not to use it or you may ruin the trans in as little
a ten miles & may have already, using it in failsafe

Fail Safe is there to protect the trans, but only if you stop
using it almost when the light comes on.

It will cut injector pulse,ignition spark & such, to let you
know your have a problem & lock the trans in a specific
gear,BUT folks still continue to cycle the ignition key &
drive on, to the tune of $5.000 leaving their bank account

BMW x5 warning light fiasco


Hello This is Mike,,

Sometimes.... Sometimes this will take care of some of those faults and codes, and it only takes a few minutes to do. I know your problem is not exact as this reset method says, but however you would be amazed on this fixes a lot of things, it like a cheap way to reset computer and fixes a lot of things back to default mode. Try it and let me know. Mike

IT'S VERY EASY TO RESET THE TRANSMISSION'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

Sounds like you maybe having a sensor failure (engine). A computer diagnostic can be performed at the vehicle dealership to determine what caused the fail safe mode to activate.
