X5 in trans safe made

Does anyone have one have a reliable wiring? Schematic for the 2001 BMW X5 E53.4.4L.
Initially, the problem was a no start issue and after replacing the Ignition switch as well as the starter. The problem was unresolved. we bypassed the Ignition switch to get it started, but after that, the transmission went into fail Safe mode.
The rear airbag Suspension system also stopped working at the same time as when the fail safe mode started. I'm trying to see if these 2 systems share a simular relay or module.
Any thoughts or suggestions that can help me locate this electronics Grimlin would be really appreciated. Thanks again in advance.

Welcome to the joys of putting your X5 into transport/line mode most likely.

After your bypass it has probably pissed off the EWS.

What codes do you have (not generic P-codes) now?

The code that I think I need to address first is a transmission code for the neutral switch. any thoughts on how I can bench test this switch before I pull the Trigger on ordering a new non returnable part? I attached the scanner print out in case you wanted to take a look at that.

Youre welcome.

Actually, I should have made it clearer that the continuity test is between the positive pin and the four L pins.
