    automatic stuck in 3rd.

    My 1985 535i is stuck in third gear. Is this an electronic issue? It has the 4 HP 22 EH transmission. Any thoughts? Thank you.

    Re: automatic stuck in 3rd.

    I just wrote a big responce to another post. The jist of it is usually the shift lever sensor. A side note this is kinda neat. If you pull the shifter down to anything past Park and have the shift lever sensor out but plugged in you can shift to any gear including reverse without touching the actual shifter. I have one car where I actually removed the shifter completly and have push buttons where the ash tray goes and I just get in and push D or whatever and go.. I did this becasue the car had been in an acident before and since it had little value but looked great I still didn't see why I should waste a good shift sensor on a prewrecked car. Then it was just cool now i have a great cup holder..!!!
