Could be the shifter cable broken, bad wiring,bad computer, or(If you bought a used on) could be a bad transmission. Unlikely both transmissions would have the exact same problem though.

Shift computer and/or the shift solenoids in the transmission. More than likely it's electrical.

you could have one of many faults. It would be dvisable to read the fault memory of your engine mangement unit. sounds like your throttle housung unit is more than likely your fault, but is impossible to know without using a diagnostic computor

I finally fixed this problem!  Not sure if it will work for everyone but it did for me.  My new mechanic said there is an electronic 10 pin connector hooked up to the throttle body and mine had 2-3 pins that weren't making a good connection....THAT'S IT!

SOURCE: i have a 1999 323i

i had the same problem with my 1998 bmw 323i and right under the back drivers seat there is an emergency convertible top lever with a orange tip on it. i removed my back seat to make it easier. when you pull that lever, you will hear a bang sound. that is the sound of the motors disengaging.(there are 3 top motors in the trunk by the left side panel when you remove it) you will then have full access of movement to either put the top up or down. But before you do any of this, i Really suggest you watch this youtube video. if this link doesnt work, you can go to youtube.com and type in bmw convertible top motor stuck and click on the first link BMW DIY #3 E36 Top Repair. I suggest watching the whole video first before attempting or if you want, you can have a mechanic do it! hope this helps

Im looking at buying a 1999 bmw 323i for $4,250 it is in very good shape inside and out but heres the problem. its not running. He told me he bought and drove it for 6 months without one problem and then...


it sounds to me like the transmission is in failsafe mode. due to the complexity of the sensors involved with the trans operation, the problem could be as simple as a improper transmission fluid level, incorrectly adjusted shift cable, or more complex like a bad trans switch. I would recommend having it checked a dealer, so they could scan the system, and double check the installation.
