    525tds car thinks its stuck in drive

    in your version of INPA on the first screen have you got option for older cars if pressing F8 i obtained a newer copy and e39s among others have to be accessed this way but you might be better getting a copy of ISTA-D runs native in windows 10 (no vmware required ) and works with dcan cable or enet cable( this plugs into lan port)
