BMW 745I Engine And Engine Cooling problems : 1.
My Vehicle Just Shut Off While I Was Driving This Has Happened A Total Of Four Times While Driving And Three Times Total While Idle. Just Recently When The Vehicle Shut Off I Almost Got Rear Ended. The Vehicle Also Would Not Start After It Had Shut Itself Off. I Tried To Start It But It Wouldn’t Turn Over. Then A Message On The The Display Read “transmission Drive Fail Safe Malfunction Only Gears P,n,r, D3 And D5 Can Be Engaged Without Pressing The Parking Brake.” And It Also Displayed Something About Battery Discharged And Will Be Disconnected Soon. Then I Was Prompted To “recharge Battery” After The Message. After The Vehicle Had Been Sitting For Almost An Hour I Started It. There Weren’t Any Messages In The Display About Malfunctions Of Any Kind Everything Was Cleared. I Drove The Vehicle Home And Turned It Off And On About Five Times And It Started Fine. I Also Noticed That When I Idle My Car And I Get Out Of The Drivers Seat Or Lift Out Of The Seat And Sit Back Down Both Times I Can Hear The Fuel Pump Buzzing For About 1-2 Seconds. *tr
