this is the Variable valve timing (VVT), bank 1 - limp-home mode - full stroke position not reached P1062 and the P1050 is the VVT control unit itself, try checking the connections to it make sure they are secure, if all looks good, then you might have to change the unit as this will keep making the vehicle go into limp mode.
hope that helps

Computer says 'trans fail safe prog'

Your car is in "LIMP" mode. The computer sensed a fault from transmission and has set it in "LIMP" mode so it's still drivable but it needs to be inspected by BMW. It could be something as simple as a dirty connection or moisture or possible early warning a more serious issues, but have BMW dealer look at it before it gets REALLY costly and leaves you stranded.

Hi badboyf6,
Limp mode can be activated by many things to numerous to list here so, if possible can you get a local mechanic to hook up an OBD lead to the ECU (computer thingy!) of the car and read the fault code.

From this reading he/she will be able to determine what has caused limp mode activation and depending what it is reset/cancel limp mode.

Gettin a fault code reading is quick and cheap to do, (even from the dealership!) and at least you will have more information to determine what is best thing to do next...
Hope this helps and good luck.

BMW (e39 1999) eml and asc lights and in limp mode

Check the ABS brake sensors in your wheels, if they are not functioning properly. It will trigger the computer to engage the ASC auto stability control light as the asc uses the brakes to assist in control. I will also engage the EML engine management light to slow the rev point to limp mode
