The steptronic is an automatic transmission, and it sounds like you may be having trouble with the torque converter lock up feature, I recommend that you check the oil level and even change the fluid in the trans, retest and see if your problem continues, if it does I strongly recommend you take it to BMW for diagnostic and repair, it will be cheaper in the long run. Hope this helps, let me know

I have a 530i 2003 bmw. The rear windows and locks do not work, the front door windows and locks do work fine. We checked all fuses.


Rear Fuses ? If not....Pull out the rear seat bottom and check fuses there.

Windows are controlled by a module which may have failed. Only way to check is with a scanner for BMW.

Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.

Repair or item list for 50k mile service for my 06 530i


Probably the pollen filters as well, brake fluid and anti freeze. If this is your last free service with the dealer it pays to ask them if you can check the service schedule list for your car.
