You will want the factory service manual for the vehicle. You can contact your bmw dealer directly. If you would like I can try and locate one for you.
Thanks,

SOURCE: BMW X5 Trans Fail Safe Program,

sometimes it will clear if you turn the X5 off and restart it. however, it could be an early indication that the tranny is about to expire. i have had it happen and it cleared with a power cycle, but also had friends where it cleared for a few weeks/months and returned. this time it was really the transmission that went bad. if you can't get it to clear, then i'd suggest taking it to the dealer and have them plug into it to have a better look.

Bmw x5 2005 sport diesel Had the turbo replaced as it was blowing smoke.still blowing smoke mainly when slow down or stop when going smoke disappears but not fully anyhelp would appreciated


Then the conclusion I would see is the engine is burning oil or the fuel injection is the source of the smoke (excessive fuel) or the new or rebuilt turbo is defective.

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!

Did u sort our problem ???? My Engine is very down on power my 2005 x5 diesel takes 14 seconds to reach 60mph ,, and should do it in about 8.5 its very sluggish and power difference is insane...


I would say that having checked the fuel and air filters that theres a stong possibillity the turbos not kicking in, dont forget an x5 is a big lump and without a turbo the result would be as you describe. regards KSK

Ihave a 2005 X5(march) and it lost power yesterday and i took it to the bmw dealer on the isle of man and found out that the turbo had broken.It only has done 38000 miles on the clock ,its out of warranty...


hi, this is a low milage for a turbo failure , it may be worth asking for a goodwill payment where BMW will pay for the cost of the turbo. It all depends on how much fuss you make, hope this is of some help.

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.
