On about august 29, 2007, I was trying to back out of a parking spot, but I could not. Please investigate this because it is dangerous and happening to too many people to be coincidence. My car has approximately 155,000 miles. Forwards gears all work fine. Of course, I was involved in a collision because I was unable to move my car from the roadway.
Loads for sale on eBay and the like. It just sat there like it was in neutral. TruckCabinFilter selectedCabinList, null ; truckCabinFilter. The assine engineers that planned this one should be shot. It's a pipe thread plug and looks like a pointless bolt. It acted as if it were in neutral but the dashboard clearly read that I was in reverse. There must be some help to be provided for what is obviously a recall-worthy malfunction.
Cost me 3k to fix. I spend thousands of dollars in other items that was just crazy, especially for a car that just had 70,000 miles. I researched the internet and see that a lot of folks are experiencing this problem. Take care not to over tighten the gasket bolt's when reassembling, etc, etc. I've called 3 different auto repair shops and each one is very, very, familiar with the problem. There was not warning that anything was failing.

Depends on the transmission it has. The dealership confirmed that the transmission needed replacement. It uses an automatic zf 5hp19 transmission. The transmission will not go into reverse. I have since learned that it is a common problem with 1999-2006 bmws.
My mechanic diagnosed the car and I was told it has transmission failure. This occurred intermittently until a week later it would not go in to reverse at all. When I put it in reverse the car idled like it was in neutral. A few days ago- it quit going in reverse. Since I bought this car used 2.

Now with my E46, I find myself hindered by what I can do because I do not understand the how to work with the electronics on these cars. But the coding of the various modules has me scratching my head. This is a dangerous defect as well as an obvious engineering failure that has nothing to do with the owners failure to service this vehicle or check the fluid level- in fact -the owner has no way to check the fluid level. One time of the three occasions I hit another car when I shifted to reverse but it didn't engage and rolled down the hill hitting the car that's 20 feet behind me. Unfortunately I am not the only person this happened to, please refer to www.
All forward gears in transmission work smoothly and flawlessly. Did he connect directly to the module? I've bought the car used about 6 months ago with 92k mi, and I now has 100k. I tried to back my car put from my drive way but my car did not want to reverse. I hope you can help me. I have seen a great deal of complaints and would like to recommend a recall. Don't forget to put it back when you are done.
