    Hi, the gearbox control unit will stay in limp home mode until the fault is cleared by a diagnostic scanner.

    u will need to take this to a BMW dealer for factory diagnosis, they are the only ones with the proper test gear to figure out the problem, but most likely the trans will need to be torn down for inspection

It could be a broken cable or chipped gears in transmission. I had a car that got stuck in 3rd gear and it was caused by a chipped gear in transmission.

You probably have a trouble code stored in the engine computer for a faulty transmission selector switch. The engine computer thinks the trans is in 3rd gear and not park. Or it really could be stuck in third gear.

2002 Auto Hyundai Accent stuck in second gear will not go up


having the transmission rebuilt in 2010 means that the tranny is 7 years old since service so there can be any amount of faults
run the fault codes to check for problem TCM, VSS, servos and solenoids
check the vacuum actuator for the transmission and vacuum lines
change the transmission oil
the engine light also reports on transmission failures

The transmission control module is expensive and if the valve body solenoids went bad, then you didn't get a raw deal. Labor, parts and fluid are about right price wise.
You could not fix it on your own without a lot of tools and knowledge of the transmission.

To make a long story short, your transmission is done. Sorry. I just went through this with my Voyeger.

It might just be a fuse. Check to see if your brake lights light up when you step on the brake with the key on. If not it is probably just a fuse.
