Question about 2000 BMW 5 Series
Error is due to a conflict of engine revs versus car speed. The control module for reasons of safety has imposed a safe home mode to prevent any further damage. The car is programmed with the data that at a certain rev output in a certain gear the car should have a certain speed. Check the following: a) The crank sensor detects engine revs. b) The transmission speed sensor detects prop rotation (there may be one on the rear differential) c) The gear selector indicates which gear has been selected. Check that all are clean, that the wiring is intact and that connections are clean and tight

"Things to check before even contemplating a transmission overhaul:
Check electrics - Alternator and battery.
Replace DME Relay and Fuel Pump Relay - not expensive.
Remove disassemble, clean and reassemble gear selector switch - If it looks beyond saving, replace ($200)
Service the transmission ($130 from a specialist) and check/replace transmission speed sensor ($90)"
