88 528e Automatic Trans Check Engine Light

Post by BayouRat »

The "Check Engine" Red Dash Light. Comes on after I put the car in Drive or Reverse. Doesn't go out till I turn off the engine. There is no flashing when the key is turned on. It's start the car. Check Engine Light is OFF! Put in reverse. Start backing down the driveway. Check Engine Light ON.

It's been like this since I got the car 7 years ago. So I was reading that it could be the 02 sensor. I changed that and it still does the same thing.

Does anyone know how to get the code or what this could be? Any help is much appreciated.

Is there anything on the transmission that would set the check engine light?
