I feel for you. It was only 112 here today as well. It's no wonder this is the only climate in the US that can grow dates.

I guess I'm on my way to going through the DME...

I'm still receiving a randomized f#%&ing of transmission failsafe (5088) but I am wondering if the switch/sensors in the gearshift get out of whack when doing a R&R...

Will be trying using sport mode till failsafe or not then will try manual only to see if it triggers failsafe.

If I'm understanding your Foxwell picture correctly, you have an open(or poor connection to) torque converter solenoid ?? I think maybe you're being bamboozled by the failsafe resistor thing which could mean anything, or even nothing, depending on the guys that wrote the Foxwell software.

The 5088 can be the magnetic switch in the valve body but when the L1-L4 is shown with a 5088 it's in the servotronic gearshift, so I'm still running with that basis.

Now as to whether the servotronic gearshift or the interlock cable is causing the failsafe resistor (transistor) to activate or is it the other way around.

Let's just say that the White Witch has almost been burned at the stake several times since this started...

Also heat isn't a factor since it can happen cold and warm, but has happened once when hotter than 2 mice f#€king in a wool sock. (See below)

So....

Would anyone who still has access to newtis be able to tell me if there's any kind of adjustment, synchronization or voodoo I should do to make sure that the mechatronic gearshift is for sure in sync with the data sent to the transmission?

I am at a complete loss and so far the only adjustment I've seen is the menu below but that's for the mechatronics in the valve body (pure assumption) but who knows and who knows what kind of damage I may do once I start dicking around with the settings..

LOL...2 mice...lol. We are going to have a nice cool day here at 107F/41C. We are finally on a cooling trend. Our evenings are now down in the lower 80's F....I'll finally be getting around to some cosmetic work on the E53 as it gets to a reasonable temp to work on it.

Same here. it's been in the high 70s when I leave for work at 6am, and a mild 98 at noon. Time to get back to work on the Beastie.

Okay, now you're just being mean

A high of 98f? It hit 120f here and once in a flaming moon 140f
