I recently bought an '02 X5, the 3.0. I also had it converted to run on LPG afterwards. The conversion was fine but I have noticed the TRANS PROG FAIL message come on on starting the engine. It then goes away whilst driving and the car is mostly normal, though the gears are pretty harsh. Could the LPG conversion have caused this, or is it likely to be a coincidence?

I have the socket out of the car but cannot unscrew the light bulb which seems to have been burnt in, therefore I cannot unstall a new bulb
For the past year, every so often my transmission will go into safety mode. The warning light indicates TRANS PROGRAM, and essentially the car still drives just fine and can reach highway speeds, but it just starts from stop really, really slow. This problem typically occurs at the moment I first brake, after not driving the car for a day or so. Then, after I start the car again, let's say at the second phase of a day's errands. The transmission runs fine.

My question, is this a failing transmission? Or is this a computer problem? My theory is that the transmission is fine, but the computer is having glitches and I'd imagine to fix a 1993 BMW computer will still cost a small fortune.

Any thoughts???
