Customer Question

I aw driving across the desert. The outside air temp was 110F. My car is a 94 BMW 525i with 230k miles. I just had the tranny rebuilt at a local tranny shop. As I was driving along the tranny shut down. The engine ran but it would limp along in a gear and then shut down. I went into M mode and would shut down after running up in a single gear. The check engine light then came on and stayed on. After letting it cool down, the tranny would run. I put in a new battery to see if it would help. It did not.
