1997 BMW 740iL Question: Transmission

What is the trans. failsafe Program -
Answer 1
When the transmission control module registers a problem, it will put the transmission into a fail safe mode, often referred to as "limp-home" mode. This allows a minimal amount of operation of the transmission so that you can get your vehicle off the road and to a safe place, and it helps to prevent any further damage to the transmission. -
