That light is telling you to have transmission serviced. not sure if it is the fluid or sensors. that is what a scan tool is for.

    some thing else comes to mind, after your brother just trashed you car. There could be some bent parts, other motor mounts, trans mounts, trans pan, vacuum tubes(if applicable). Make sure all sensors and wires are in the right spots and undamaged, test them if need be. After that then take to a specialist and have your brother foot the bill.

SOURCE: hard down shift

I've read article after article on Chrysler forums where anything other than Autopar ATF in their transmissions cause problems, erratic shifting, etc, including what your experiencing. The techs that deal with it daily through Chrysler/Dodge shops, say there is some properties or chemicals in Autopar fluid, that others just don't have, no matter what they say, and they have proven it, time after time, with symptoms that disappear, just by changing fluids to Autopar. My wife's relatives own one of the more respected & trusted repair shops in our area, and they swear by that rule too, because they've also experienced it in the past. I'm naturally assuming you know that your experienced enough to know how to install filter properly & what to watch for, so with that said, I hate to say it, but Mopar ATF4 is the one & only fluid for best results. P.S. I recently had my transmission with 260,000km. replaced at Ontario Reman, whom back when I was with Chrysler, was the sole supplier of rebuilt engines & transmissions for Chrysler. When I questioned them on the fluid in my new/rebuild they responded with same answer, Mopar ATF and nothing else. If you do some googling on it, you'll find many that went to quick lube or similar for same service only to experience shifting problems etc after. Switched back to autopar as advised & problems went away. Can't say 100% that's your problem, but if it were me, I'd change it.

Bmw 528i 1999


any check engine light? Try cleaning the intake throttle plate with a lightly soaked paper towel, the plate is located in the intake; with throttle cable attached to it at the top of the engine near the bellows boot attached to the air cleaner assembly that comes off the mass airflow to the intake. It looks a 3.5 mm cd. That plate gets dirty and throws off the idle air control.

a lot of new cars have a pressure solenoid switch in them that will make car shift hard when they become defective plus also the engine computer controls when your car shifts gears as well. have it hooked up to scanner to check for any default codes .if it is the seloniod it will have a code stored for it a well but also check you transmission fluid to make sure it is not in need of fluid a well. hope this helps thanks 10 zacks

My ABS light came on and 20 miles later after stopping at a traffic light, my 1998 BMW 528i will shift out of 3rd gear. It is an auto trans?


You will need to get it diagnosed to see which wheel sensor is bad.

If both the abs and the brake light are on on the speedo dont work them the module is bad.

Also make sure the tire pressures are the same
