crusher is an unknown quantity at this point
I recently purchased a 525IA and have a problem with first gear. It shifts into second gear almost immediatly and then I have almost no power. This is especially a concern when I make a turn onto a highway and it shifts right away. Can this be programed by the dealer to change the shift points?

what year is it? Could be a valve body problem. I would recommend having the fault codes checked and have the dealer do a dcs on it.
