3RD SPEED SENSOR REPLACEMENT

1997 BMW 528

Engine Performance problem
1997 BMW 528 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

HELLO,

I have a 97 BMW 528i that burns out the speed sensor every so often. I just bough the thing and the owner 'swears' it was fine. Whatever the case may be, I can't seem to find any reason why this sensor needs to keep being replaced. The computer goes into fail safe mode making me drive everywhere in S2 and it's so annoying! I don't have the money to keep replacing this part. Anyone have any ideas what to do? They said they have checked the computer control module it it said it was ok. Any thoughts would be great! Thanks.
