I have just had a message come up, engine failsafe prog, what could this mean? BMW X5 3.0l petrol 2001


You need to scan it for a fault code, it could be one of the cam or crank sensors or a vacuum leak/airflow problem

1 Answer

Error codes PO600 and P1747


P1747 CAN-Bus Monitoring
P0600 Serial Communication Link
These codes indicate a communications failure between the transmission control unit and ABS/traction system. These modules share information which allow them to operate properly. It is likely that one of the modules has an internal fault.
With these generic codes it is not possible to determine the exact nature of the issue. Your best bet is going to be a dealer diagnosis using their sophisticated equipment so that the root cause can be determined and eliminate any guess work. The p codes are too generic in this case, unfortunately.

Transmission sensor ( fail safe prog )


I have had to have my BMW X5 2004 transmission rebuilt TWICE in the last 2 years. First, @80K, it just stopped, though engine rev'd. When the trans place opened it up, they said the trans oil was burned, so they rebuilt it for $2,500. I had problems over the year and then it went again during the warranty and they repaired it, free. Lasted 14K Miles. I got ALOT of Trans Failsafe Prog lights. When I turned off the car, it reset, but ultimately came back on, and forewarned an impending trans failure. When the trans went the 2nd time, I bought a USED 40K trans from LKQ (I was lucky to find one with low mileage) for $2K and had the trans place put it in. NO PROBLEMS now. I got this advice from a BMW dealer parts guy out in PA - NO ONE can really rebuild BMW Trans well. Either go for a remanufactured one, or a low mileage used one. Getting them rebuilt at the local trans place will only give you heart aches and you'll end up doing the job again. ALSO: DO NOT WAIT FOR the BMW recommended 100K miles to replace the trans fluid. I suggest 60K. That's the #1 cause of trans failure. I'm out $6K on trannys now, but I'm about to take legal action. One more thing - I used K-Solv in my radiator, and the Trans guy told me that it clogged up the trans cooler. He took off the cooler lines and put a video tube camera up there, and yes, it showed cloggage. Jury is out on who's the real culprit here. Bottom line: Trans Program Failure is a pre-cursor to transmission failure. Get ready... Don't let a local shop rebuild it! Start shopping for a low mileage used one!

Message shows Trans Failsafe Prog


OK, the sad news is that you are quite likely to be due for a transmission overhaul. But switch the car off on level ground and let it sit for a few minutes and it should come good for a while. Possibly even weeks. The trigger for the warning and fail safe is related to the build up of particulate matter in the sump of the tranmission so I'm told. You might prolong the period until the transmission needs a rebuild by dropping the pan and cleaning it out,then refitting and filling with a top quality transmission oil. Its only a short term fix though. The good news is that the transmission is quite a conventional unit and unless you are still under warranty you can get quotes from mainstream auto transmission specialists and you may only pay around $3500 AuD with a 12/20 warranty.
Good luck. David

Bmw x5 trans fail safity prog it will start but does not sound right also the battery light is on


9 out of 10 times a defective battery/ charging system causes problems with transmission. Why? because a computer controls your transmission. Have battery and charging system checked out.

BMW x5 warning light fiasco


Hello This is Mike,,

Sometimes.... Sometimes this will take care of some of those faults and codes, and it only takes a few minutes to do. I know your problem is not exact as this reset method says, but however you would be amazed on this fixes a lot of things, it like a cheap way to reset computer and fixes a lot of things back to default mode. Try it and let me know. Mike

IT'S VERY EASY TO RESET THE TRANSMISSION'S COMPUTER. HOLD GAS PEDAL DOWN. TURN THE KEY TO THE NUMBER TWO. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE GAS PEDAL DOWN FOR THIRTY SECONDS.RELEASE THE GAS PEDAL AND PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL FOR TEN SECONDS. NOW YOU CAN TURN THE VEHICLE ON. THAT SHOULD TAKE IT OUT OF SAFE MODE

Sounds like you maybe having a sensor failure (engine). A computer diagnostic can be performed at the vehicle dealership to determine what caused the fail safe mode to activate.
