P0401 is EGR insufficient flow. I had this code when my exhaust manifold was cracked... not likely to cause a trans limp mode.

BTW, this code suggests to me that you are using a generic code reader. Forget using that to sort your issues - you need something that reads BMW fault codes properly. A laptop with INPA, DIS, ISTA-D, PA-Soft 1.4 or a hardware scanner like a Foxwell and a few others. A generic scanner won't tell you most of the codes...

P.S. please don't post the same question in multiple threads...
