Question about BMW 525

1 Answer

I have a 1992 BMW 525i. When I go to wide open throttle a message comes on my diagnostic display that says "transmission program. This happens when the switch is in automatic and it reads ED on the display when I start driving. At this point the car transmission is sluggish almost like it's slipping If I stop and turn the car off then back on it reads ED and drives normally till I jump on it again

    Ive heard that it could be the connections on the DME or on the cae computor itself. Think thats possible? Had to many problems with this 525i just want the cheapest fix so I can sell it

    Replace the DME relay and the fuel pump relay might work too right?

Check these things out before you do anything else with your car:
First make sure your alternator and battery are in great shape (take the car to your local auto parts store and they will test them for free) Next,
replace the DME relay and fuel pump relay. After you check your two relays, remove and disassemble and then clean and reassemble the gear selector switch (or replace if needed) and finally, have the transmission serviced and replace the transmission speed sensor (if needed)

How do I add tranny fluid to my 1992 BMW 525i


If there is a dipstick, add the proper fluid to the dipstick fillter tube. If there is no dipstick, there are drain plugs on the side that will have to be removed to check the level, at normal operating temperature.

Maybe check autozone.com for further information. There are two brands of transmission used in the BMWs of that era. ZF and GM transmissions. There are also a number of types of transmission used in the BMW 525i vehicles.

Check online for a service bulletin regarding the automatic transmission used in your vehicle, or check with the dealer.

I found a service bulletin that's in black and white, but it was not pastable to the fixya.com website.
Sorry, about that.

Good luck on finding a solution to adding transmission fluid to your 1992 BMW 525i vehicle.

Adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.


On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

Need location of fuel pump on a 1992 BMW 525i straight six engine


The fuel pump is located under the back seat on the passenger side. You will find an access cover and will need to remove the screws. You should be able to listen for the pump while someone cranks the car. Also I believe there is a large green w/ blue trace wire and an equally large brown wire at the connector. Check for battery voltage across the two wires. The fuse for the pump should be in the fuse panel under the hood.
