Customer Question
My 2009 BMW 750i...

My 2009 BMW 750i is not going into gear. The "D" on the gear shift and dashboard is flashing. This happened 2 times before and was able to turn car on and off to reset issue, but this time it isn't able to reset.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

I'll assume the transmission is the life of the car. The park break switch?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 750i yourself? What have you tried so far?

I only know to turn car on and off to possibly reset issue but that didn't work. I towed the car to a nearby dealer

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's pretty much it. Thanks

I have a 2009 BMW 750i and the car isn't going into gear. The "D" on the dashboard and gear shift is flashing. This issue happened 3 years ago and was able to turn car on and off to reset the issue, but this time it isn't able to reset.
