Question about 1998 BMW 5 Series
P0741 and gear 4 code. will not shift into any gear.. solenoid and trans fluid already replace, and had metal shaving in the pan...bad trans or can this be fixed?
Given what you have said & the metal shavings
I would pull it & rebuild it
Not worth diagnosing the PO741 TCC issue as long as there
is metal, it is thru out the entire unit.
Nothing special about that trans because it is in a euro car
They use Gm Trans & the US Mfg uses Euro, across some vehicle lines & models

SOURCE: These codes comes out P0741
Your torque converter is not locking up.
The solution is to have the torque converter replaced and the transmission serviced.
Hopefully, you are still under warranty and can get it repaired it for free.
If not, it can get pretty expensive.

This means the transmission has gone into safe mode. Usually happens if there is an ABS sensor that has gone, is the ABS light illuminated?
