Transmission light on 2001 BMW 330i?

Asked by Jan 26, 2014 at 04:42 PM about the 2001 BMW 3 Series 330i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My transmission light (orange gear with exclamation point) came on while I was at a red
light. Now the car has problems accelerating from a slow speed or a stop. Engine still revs
normally. What is it and what is the price for repair?

Since the light is on, you can pull some code numbers to tell you what the issue is. Most times that light is trans related but sometimes not.
