05-20-2013 at 11:57 PM - transmission light?
I have a 2003 325i
I have stalled four times in the last... 200 miles. (I know I should of checked this sooner)
When I stall this exclamation point in a squiggly line box Icon appears next to the "D" on my dashboard where my speedometer is and stuff. In the manual, it says that light means its something to do with my transmission and I should see a BMW specialist ASAP. It's hard to afford my BMW while in college and other stuff.
I took it to one BMW place today and they told me I needed a new alternator. It doesn't exactly make sense though because I don't exactly know how my alternator breaking down has anything to do with me stalling. I would think my alternator dying would cause my car to not turn on. I don't know. I am stressed about it because I hear this new alternator will cost me $500 +...Which I can't exactly afford.
I am most likely going to go to a different BMW specialist tomorrow.
Does anyone know anything about this? Help?
