I spilled water on my gear shifter earlier today and now the transmission has a mind of its own. When in park, the D light flashes. When in D, the car automatically switches itself between D and Manual and automatically shifts gears as though in M. Has anyone ever had this happen? Any advice?

Just had my 528 BMW repaired for same problem. I thought it would be the transmission (and plenty $$$$). It was the "gear gadget" which was separate from the trans...it basically wears out and acquires a mind of its own. My cost was about $400 parts and labor @ $75.00/hr. Good luck and hope it's cheaper for you!
