Help !! Transmission Fail safe
Hi everyone -
It's very cold here in Chicago and on my way home from the airport the Transmission Fail Safe came on in my 2003 E39. The car was perfect up until 5 miles away from home. It went into limp mode and I was able to get it pulled to the side of the highway. When I came to a stop i noticed some smoke and heard gears. I looked in my manual and followed directions and the car starts up just fine, but will not go into gear.
I had it towed and it's now sitting in my garage. What can be the problem?? Will disconnecting the battery reset it? It is because my car sat in -45 weather for 2 days and fluids froze up??
I am very upset and stressed out. I can't afford an expensive repair!!
Any advice would be really appreciated.
