There are several relays in the fuse/relay box but which one is the flash relay for the L & R signals
My left turn signal would intermittenly not work and then the right one stopped and now neither are working check the fuse its good what to do
I have a very low mileage 840CI (14,500 Miles). I believe I tripped something replacing both batteries in the trunk as the auto transmission will not go into forward or reverse.
Any way I can reset anything that I might have tripped?? Also, got Transmission Fail-Safe indication, but not getting that anymore. Radio will not accept code to reset either.
The symptoms are:
The first time I was waiting for a green traffic light when suddenly the car wouldn't go. I looked at the OBC and the trans fail message was there. I pulled out the key and start the car again has if nothing happened. The second time the car did started running, but very very weak, as if it was running in the first gear. Same thing; I pulled over, pull out the key and started the car again as if nothing happened.
I took my 840 to the mechanic to perform a scanning after the OBC showed the message and the diagnosis was:

042($2A) Speed signal n-ab

I got the Speedometer Sensor - Located in differential

Part # : 62 16 8 357 020

will this solve the problem or should I'd be looking for something else?
Any help will be appreciated.
