Question about Cars & Trucks
Transmission is not shifting. 4k rpm at 50mph. When I start vehicle, bell chimes and airbag light lights up, chimes again brake, abs, and wheel track lights turn on. When I shut it off, the gearshift/mileage indicator light stays on. Things I've done: replaced ground wire, ran new hot wire to fuse box (TIPM)...To shut off gear/mileage light I turned #3fuze 180 degrees (IOD fuse).

SOURCE: dcs and abs light staying on
car is sensing a problem with the stability control system (DSC) or the antilock brake system (ABS). usually an ABS problem will turn off the DSC, so DSC may be ok, just ABS needs a look at.
since its an '08 model, it should still be covered by the BMW warranty provided you live in the USA. take it in and have them fix it. not safe driving with both systems deactivated.

Hi. this light is a warning that concerns the ABS sensor and mechanism assembly. there is a central module and connecting sensors that are attached to each axle/rotor. If any of the sensors become unstable or starts to malfunction, the main module will detect this anomaly and it will trip the light via, the ECM.
I recommend taking this vehicle in so that the ABS techs can diagnosis this issue and they can pin point which sensor or mechanism is malfunctioning.
You vehicle seems to operate in a normal manner at this point but, you will actually have to be in a hard braking situation in order to experience this malfunctions results. If you where to initiate a hard brake while the ABS system is in safe mode(light on), your vehicle would simply lock up. It would not provide the ABS actions due to this malfunction that is evident at this point.
Please rate and god bless:)

Hi the RED BRAKE LIGHT is also for low brake fluid
check the brake fluid level in most cases if the brake fluid is low you need the brakes replaced

I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.
