You have an alternator or battery concerne,low voltage caused all the other problems,Start with a battery,then have alternator tested.The failsafes are designed to keep from burning up solenoids and other electronic components.

pretty quick. but be sure it the alternator. You can test it by starting the car then unplugging the battery. If it cuts off when you unplug it it's the alternator if it keeps running it's not the problem

SOURCE: trans failsafe prog came on and sluggish start out

this is common, most of the time water gets into the ecu box, you can tell this by looking inside the black box under the bonnet, the worst ones have a white holder inside them.
check this if not get a plug in to see.
sometimes this message isnt there, if so check the gearbox oil if you have a 5hp box it has to be running then remove large allen key, if it drips out its full, bear in mind there will be oil ontop of plug that is stuck in thread. if low on oil it this will give u the prob

SOURCE: Message shows Trans Failsafe Prog

OK, the sad news is that you are quite likely to be due for a transmission overhaul. But switch the car off on level ground and let it sit for a few minutes and it should come good for a while. Possibly even weeks. The trigger for the warning and fail safe is related to the build up of particulate matter in the sump of the tranmission so I'm told. You might prolong the period until the transmission needs a rebuild by dropping the pan and cleaning it out,then refitting and filling with a top quality transmission oil. Its only a short term fix though. The good news is that the transmission is quite a conventional unit and unless you are still under warranty you can get quotes from mainstream auto transmission specialists and you may only pay around $3500 AuD with a 12/20 warranty.
Good luck. David

BMW X5 2004 TRANS FAILSAFE PROG


Hi; If I get the 'Trans Failsafe Prog" message twice within about 2 hours, The SES light will go on automatically. Since I do not seem to have any real transmission problems, this SES message clears itself in about 24 hours. The "Trans Failsafe Prog" messageseems to be used to indicate other transmission problems as well, like loss of transmission fluid, so be careful. I have a 2002 X5. Cheers. Omer
