Auto transmission light, now fixed (hopefully)

Post by Johnbmwz4 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 4:43 pm

My auto transmission light has always come on every now and again when I started car but once I turned off and back on again it went away so never really bothered me. I had my local garage have a look at it but they couldn’t find anything wrong. Any way it started to come on more often, almost every time I started the car so decided to get it sorted. After numerous phone calls to gearbox specialists I decided to take it to Automatic Transmitions in Huddersfield as all the others didn’t seem to want to know or had no idea what the fault could be. As soon as I told them the problem they told me it’s more than likely the auto transmission switch and they had one in stock as he ordered one for another Z4 owner but he never turned up to get it fitted. When I got there he put a code reader on the car. Must have been a good one as he had a list of logged faults as long as his arm which he cleared for me. My cheap EBay one never picks up any faults. One of the faults was the auto transmission switch. This was the only fault code to do with the gearbox. Anyway 45mins later job was done. Cost me £260 and has 1 year warranty so fingers crossed.
