My car only has 9000 mi. on it and a bunch of things went wrong all at once. My transmission light started to blink on my dash. It said that I needed to stop the car and reset the system! I pulled over and turned off the car, and it wouldn’t start again. I got a message that I needed to find the closest BMW service center. Then when I tried to start my car the gears - drive, neutral and reverse wouldn’t show up, and I couldn’t even put it in park. The navigation system said that it was a DSC or DTC fault. I finally got my car to start again, but it wouldn’t go over 60 mph. There was no pick up - like I was driving a high gear. Do you know what’s going on? Any ideas?
