ENGINE FAILSAFE PROGRAM on 2002 BMW X5

I attempted to start my car up, it is choking and won't accelerate past 1 mph, I give it gas but the odometer isn't moving past the number 1. I noticed my antifreeze was low, so I added some, but the problem is still occurring. Can you help me?

This will need to be looked at by a shop, they will connect a computer to your vehicle so they can read the diagnostic data to determine what is happening. Without that info it's hard to know where to even start. http://repairpal.com/chicago-heights-auto-repair

This is a transmission problem - torque convertor / gearbox I'm afraid.

Its usually a wire harness failure that causes this. The only way i know of to fix it is to go to a dealership and see if they can replace the engine wire harness.
