ALARM SENSOR "TRANSMISSION PROGRAM FAILUR

1995 BMW 740

Transmission problem
1995 BMW 740 V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

What are the most common issues associated with this particular alarm. I just turned over 150000 miles and this is when the alarm sensor came on " Transmission Program Failure".

What are some of the more unique problems associated with this alarm?

Can I use an OBD II to check this problem?

The issue can be determined with proprietary BMW software from the dealer, I don't think the generic scanners can read the faults in the electronic transmission control. This fault can sometimes be corrected with software.

If I purchase this software from BMW, can it be loaded onto the OBD II Scanner?

BMW does not sell the software.
