BMW 530d e60 2006 gearbox fault

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, im new to this. Recently bought a 530d e60 (2006), had the transmission fault come up on the dash. It's come up a few times and wondering has anyone else had these issues. Would a gearbox service do the job? Thanks!

Hi Andrew, I've serviced the gearbox (plastic tray and fluid change) and seems better and smoother. However weirdly the transmission fault came up yesterday before the car was even started, then I decided to kick the car about for an hour and nothing came up at all, then this morning I performed the gearbox memory reset so lets hope all goes well, thank you for replying pal!

Hope that's sorted then. But as Andrew said initially, get the codes read should the warning appear again.

 

Welcome to the forum by the way.

You need to read the diagnostic fault codes which are stored in the cars ecu.  The warning light on the dash doesn't tell you anything.

 

A fault with the gearbox could be one of many many things and needs looking at by a transmission specialist ideally but any decent local garage should be able to read your fault codes for a fee.
