SOURCE: i have a 1998 bmw 740il and when i go to put it in

Page 63. It seems as though you have your transmission in Manual Program. Normal driving should use Adaptive program.

Or, your transmission is slipping.

SOURCE: mazda protege 99 o/d light starts blinking

This is just a guess, but my Mazda o/d light was blinking and it was the transmission overheating. It didn't hurt mine. Coolant was getting low in the radiator. But the engine was not overheating. It was highway driving.

Got a 2001 bmw 2.5 auto its got no reverse when I put it in it don't move.i know this is going to cost a lot of money

You can take it to a transmission shop and ask them to adjust the bands, but more than likely they will charge a small fortune and want to rebuild the transmission. Only other option is to try and get a good transmission from a wrecked car and swap the tranny's out.

I have the DSC and another round symbol on the dash of my E46 on they wont go off, whats the prob pls?

The DSC shows a problem with traction control. The round symbol (looks like a gear) shows a problem with transmission. If you turn the ignition completely off & back on they should reset if not you should take the car for a diagnostic.
