Transmission light on.. HELP!
I have a 1999 323i, i was driving tonight when the "check transmission" light came on. I immediatly stopped and checked the manual, I did what it said (put in park, set e-brake, turn off ignition, wait, turn back on). the light went off but came back on when i put in drive. I then realized the steering wheel lights were blinking and the cruise control buttons and horn were not working. the radio controls work though. any ideas? I find it odd that the transmission light came on and the cruise stopped working at the same time, is this related and what could be the problem? the horn was working 5 minutes before all this happened because I blew it at a deer that was standing in the middle of the road.
Had alternator checked, came back good, scanned, showed no codes, did have a 3.98amp unexplained drain.
