Hi my name is***** am an ASE certified mechanic with over 15 years experience.

The Transmission fail safe mode is something that should not be ignored.

This message is displayed when the transmission has a major internal failure.

You should take your vehicle in for service right away!

If you are the avid do-it-yourselfer, you might try and procure some genuine BMW atf from the dealership, drain the transmission fluid and fill it up to the proper level. This is about the most I would recommend without having extensive technical knowledge. Please make sure you use the proper fluid and fill to the correct level. Incorrect fluid type or level can cause serious problems to your transmission.

If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know.
