E61 525d ‘04 Gearbox not going into P easily

Recommended Posts

Over the past few days I’ve noticed that the car isn’t detecting that I’ve put the gearbox into P and I have to wiggle it a bit. It’s really annoying because the car won’t release the keys unless it can sense it’s in P.

 

anyone know if this is an easy fix or what needs to be done? Feels like a sensor problem?

Thanks andrew.

 

it actually started at the same time that my alternator packed up. That has since been replaced but the problem with P is still there.

 

coincidence or has the alternator shafted something?
