Sounds like a sensor issue on your transmission. it is going into failsafe mode for some reason because the computer is not receiving an input that it should. there may be a loose wiring connection on the tranny. the first thing i would do is check for loose wires. after that you may need one of several sensors. if the car works fine when this message does not appear i would not think the transmission itself is bad.

The engine fail safe program light came on in my BMW X5 2006 and now the car won't start ...can It be reset?


Depends why the Failsafe was triggered. Read the codes would be a good way to start. Anyway, since the car wont start, it may be the crankshaft position sensor, which will cause a trans failsafe and prevent the car from starting.

How do I reset the "transmission failsafe program" light on the dash? The car seems to drive normal except for that light being on.


Keep driving it, you will have a $5,000 repair bill

Stop using it & hope you can save the trans with the
proper diagnosis, to find the reason it went into failsafe

I have a 2004 BMW X5, i was driving up a hill when the trans failsafe prog light came on, it has done this before & I was told pull over turn engine off, wait 5min at it will go, which it did. Though...


The transmission has gone into limp mode. My Boomer done the same thing' if it wont reset itself i think the only option is a BMW dealer to faultfind. Very complicated computor controlled transmission beyond any novice im afraid.

Electronic Throttle Control Indicator Light dodge caliber 2007


Stop using the car--period

Have it checked for codes,road tested &
diagnosed

I think you have very bad ignition coils that
put it into failsafe

They are so bad they spike the computer &
take out the throttle postion sensor signal &
you get ETC Failsafe

Can't use it like that-- it will ruin the exhaust converter

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
