Transmission Failsafe Program

Hi Its SBR from Abu Dhabi where BMW cars are a craze. I drive a BMW 528i 1999 model happily untill yesterday when this waring appaerded on the screen "TRANSMISSION FAILSAFE PROGRAM. Ilost the drive power, no indication of speedometer etc. Thing were normal this morning after the overnight parking but after driving 25KM the indication is back and i lost power.

Is this a serious matter. Should I stop driving and how I fix it . computer checking says some speed sensing switch . Where is it and do we need to repalce and how difficult / expensive is it
