the gear symbol on the dash board comes on and the gears won't shift

Asked by May 30, 2010 at 03:11 AM about the 1993 BMW 3 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

there are times that the gear symbol would come on and if it does, the transmission won't shift. I believe it happens when I try to start the car when it's cold like in the mornings. When the car's engine is hot, it does not come on no matter how many times I try to start it.
