Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

Transmission in caution mode

I had my brakes redone and radiator. then my speedometer and locks only worked sporadically... then after several monhs my transmission has gone into some protective mode. I went to a garage and they replaced my transmission speed sensor for $300 and it is still not fixed. Now they say I should have my ABS sensors reolaced( $850) and by process of elimination they will figure this out. Help???

Start at beginning this started after your brakes were done. did you have it done at a bmw shop or aftermarket shop. wheel speed sensors will cause your vehicle to go into limp mood that is what you are most likely in that is so that you do not hurt the car. do you have any lights flashing at you while you drive is your lights for the P.R.N.D.L gear selectors in blocked out lettering not like normal. it is a good chance that one of the the wheel speed sensors was damaged at your brake job. or if the wires from your brakes that give you brake pad warnings for were damaged. Go back to B.M.W shop with someone that knows your car. the shop you were talking about sounded like the liked your money more than to help Good luck.

HOW TO SHIFT TO 4 WHEEL DRIVE


Hi - Here is instruction how to do.

From N to 4H

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to shift into "4H".

From 4H to 4H LOCK

You can operate the transfer switch either

when the vehicle is stopped or while the

vehicle is moving.

Position the front wheels straight ahead

and turn the switch to shift into "4H LOCK".

If the vehicle is moving, we recommend

that the speed be less than 100 km/h (60

mph) during this operation.

NOTE:

• When shifting between the transfer

switch position and the transfer gear

position is unmatched, all 4WD indicators

will blink and the buzzer will sound.

• If it is difficult to shift between "4H" and

"4H LOCK" while the vehicle is moving,

try accelerating and decelerating your

vehicle several times after turning the

transfer switch. Be sure to wait until traffic

conditions allow you to accelerate and

decelerate safety before using this procedure.

From 4H LOCK to 4L LOCK

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to shift into "4L LOCK".

From 4L LOCK to 4H LOCK

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to shift into "4H LOCK".

From 4H LOCK to 4H

You can operate the transfer switch either

when the vehicle is stopped or while the

vehicle is moving.

Position the front wheels straight ahead

and turn the switch to shift into "4H". If the

vehicle is moving, we recommend that the

speed be less than 100 km/h (60 mph) during

this operation.

NOTE:

• When shifting between the transfer

switch position and the transfer gear

position is unmatched, all 4WD indicators

will blink and the buzzer will sound.

• If it is difficult to shift between "4H" and

"4H LOCK" while the vehicle is moving,

try accelerating and decelerating your

vehicle several times after turning the

transfer switch. Be sure to wait until traffic

conditions allow you to accelerate and

decelerate safety before using this procedure.

From 4H to N

64J209

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to the mark (1) at the left of the "N"
position, and hold the switch in this posi-

tion for 5 seconds until the "N" indicator

blinks, then turn the switch to the "N" position.

When you turn the transfer switch to the

"N" position, "N" indicator will come on with

the buzzer sound.

CAUTION

• Be sure to stop the vehicle completely

before operating the transfer

switch to shift between "N" and

"4H", or between "4H LOCK" and

"4L LOCK".

• Do not shift between "4H" and "4H

LOCK" unless the front wheels are

in the straight-ahead position and

we recommend that the vehicle

speed be less than 100 km/h (60

mph).

Do not operate the transfer switch

while tires are racing.

• Do not operate your vehicle in "4H

LOCK" or "4L LOCK" on dry, hard

surfaces.

(Continued)

CAUTION

(Continued)

• Do not operate the vehicle while a

4WD mode indicator is blinking

except when shifting between "4H"

and "4L LOCK".

If you operate the vehicle while a

4WD mode indicator is blinking, a

buzzer will sound and the transfer

will shift to "N" (Neutral) to prevent

transfer case damage.

In this case, use the following procedure.

1) Depress the clutch pedal fully (if

equipped) or shift the automatic

transmission gearshift lever to the

"N" position.

2) Turn the transfer switch to the

position previously selected.
3) Operate the transfer switch again.

I cranked my 2000 dodge ram 1500 and the abs and brake indicators came on and the speedometer is not working but the truck is running fine.


Check fuses. The speedometer works off electronic signals, it is common for several indicators, like the brake light and abs signal to work off the same fuse. Check your owners manual for fuse panel location and fuse identification. Don't be surprised if you experience strange transmission shifting while this fuse is out as well. Without the speedometer signal the transmission doesn't know when to shift properly.

Speedometer and Odometer quick working. How do I


Follow the speedometer cable from the firewall, down to the transmission. It should bolt in the transmission, remove the cable from the transmission, and turn the gear to check to see if speedometer is working, if not, it's most like the speedometer head unit.

Brakes lock up autmatically


Try bleeding the entire brake system and I would recommend using fresh brake fluid. Do the front brakes or rear brakes lock up? Perhaps the front calipers need to be worn in a bit since the car has been sitting for a while or the rear wheel cylinders need to be worn in as well. Parts tend to dry up when not used on a regular basis.
