I need to know what is causing the trans program light to come on in my 94 bmw 740i because then car goes into high gear and transmission begin to whine and I would stop and shut engine off and this would reset the transmission and car would run fine until it happen again and I would go through the same steps.

the mileage is 187,830 and a new valve body was installed in @ stop the transmission whining I disconnect the harness from the module under driver seat, but it would still go in the trans program but without the whining and when I turn the ignition switch off this would reset the program and everything is good
