I used all BMW recomended fluids and filter,gaskets etc. It was a nomal fluid change everything went fine and once I was finished went to take a test drive to see if the transmission fault indicator would come back on because it had been from time to time,and it will not move at all no forward no reverse not anything.Is there a reset or something to perform that I don't knoe about.This is my first BMW,please help.I know it has to be something simple.Other then the fault light coming on here and there it had a gasket leaking but worked fine,so all should be fixed,why won't it move now?

    Do you have the metal transmission pan or the plastic pan? Your car "should" have the plastic pan, which has the filter built into it. Metal pans have a seperate replaceable filter.

    also, how did you fill the transmission?
