why will the transmission click into the emergency gear if nothing is wrong.


Asked by Jan 21, 2014 at 08:00 PM about the BMW 3 Series

Question type: General

For no apparent reason the tranny clicks into emergency mode.

2 Answers


Have the codes read. It is usually the contacts at the transmission were corroded. The assumption is that the additional water in the area caused a random fault code, resulting the emergency mode. The code(s) were cleared and the connections cleaned. No more problem!
