Question about 1984 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

I have a 2004 BMW 545i. The Transmission Light came on 2 days ago but it has not been on since. I thought Transmission Fluid might be low. If it is I woulds like to knoow what type I should use. Once I experienced that problem, the next day my car would not start. I had the battery recharged so that seems to have resolved the problem. However is it time for a new battery. I have not driven my car for more than 3 months.

I had the transmission fluid checked. It was ok- Apparently a malfunction in the electrical system. The battery has been recharged and I drove it yesterday. It seems to be ok. I plan to replace the battery soon, since it has not been replaced since I purchased the car in 2004. I drive it so infrquently I think the battery simply died. It has been driven approximately 25 miles since December 2008. I plan to drive it on the highway this summer.

2005 BMW 545i engine Code P0962 "Pressure Control Solenoid "A" Control Circuit Low"


The common joke acronym for "BMW" is Break My Wallet. BMWs are very nice cars but they are somewhat complex and quite expensive to maintain.

Take the car to an auto parts store such as Autozone. They have an OBDII code reader that can reset (clear) the error code. If the code does not come back on, then you're good to go, However, if it does come back on then the fix is have it serviced.

I would take it in to the dealer and ask them for an estimate of costs and if you think it's too much then perhaps find an independent shop to do the work (rather than the dealership).

Good luck!!

What type of power steering fluid and the capicity does bmw 545i 2004


Most BMWs have a dip stick in the reservoir cap to measure the fluid level of the power steering fluid. We use Agip power steering fluid. There are generally just two types, standard Dextrn/ATF and Power steering fluid. Unless the cap or manual states otherwise, then just put power steering fluid in it.

check the fluid and all the wiring plugs going to the transmission.it is not uncommon for oil to drip onto a plug and cause bad readings,or vacuum lines that are cracked.
