Car was driving fine until maintenance work was completed and environment inspection was completed.
Very noticeable at low speeds and when getting out of car
The outside turn-signal flashes when I turn it on, but the arrow light is not blinking inside the car, on the dashboard indicating that the turn-signal is in use. So I tend to turn it on to change lanes but forget to turn it off time to time because I dont see the light blinking in front of me on the dash, can someone tell me where to look as far as it goes with the electrical spectrum of the problem. Thank you.

I have a 93 740i that I got from a little old man and woman. They serviced the car exactly on time and by bmw service e center. Only 134,000 miles on it. But it seems that the transmission takes off sluggish. When I attempt to put it in economy mode. - the display just flashes back and forth from winter to economy.
