Question 2000 328i Traction Control Light On ALL the Time!!

Hey guys,

We recently had a pretty nasty snow storm up here in Minnesota and as I was out driving in it, I ended up getting stuck. Usually the Blizzacks get me around great in the snow, but it doesn't much matter when you are forced to stop at a red light in about 8 inches of snow!

So, the problem happened as I was trying to get unstuck and rocking the car back and forth from reverse to drive and decided to turn off the traction control as I was moving forward. When I did this, the traction control light came on as it normally would, AND the explination mark with a circle around it appeared...(!) kinda.

I know from a prior expirance this is not a good thing to see. I've already replaced a transmission in this car due to this problem but when it happened last time, there was the (!) sign along with a D for the car being in drive...kinda like this - (!)D but now just (!).

Along with that issue, it's not going into overdrive again...I think I'm just runing in 2nd and 3rd. If anyone knows a good place to start on this issue, please let me know. Any ideas or prior experiances are much appriciated!!

Thank you,
