Just joined the group
Recently purchase 2002 530i with 58 k miles and guess what? Yep...Check engine light / torque converter issues
No slipage Runs like a clock
Changed the "never have to change" fluid It was awful looking
Light went out after reset and low and behold it came back on three days later
There are posts all over the place about this problem but I have seen where someone with the same set of circumstances hard booted the computer and it cleared out all the error messages and the light hasn't come back on since
That sounds reasonable but is there anyone out there who can verify that theory?
Would love to hear some good news before I go setting everything
