Hello Suzanne, have you had a chance to get the codes read from a scan tool that can read BMW cars?

at any time when boosting the car were the cables reversed on accident?

it sounds like the car is in whats called " limp home mode" where the speed and the engine are limited to a fault in the system, without knowing the codes there can be hundreds of reasons, this is also not common or else i would have a answer for you. so we need to get the codes read to see what the issue can be , i can help if we get the codes read. thanks, ***** *****
