I have an automatic bmw e90 2005 - 320d. I've been driving it for quite a while now, and few days ago i noticed something which I could not find info, and not certain if is okay.
With the car in P mode, and engine off. By mystake I tried to switch it to the reverse so and then to start the car. But then the transmission light came on and wouldn't allow me to switch from P to R mode.
Switched off the car and then turned it on - everything seems to be working okay now.
Just wondering if that is normal behavior, to protect the gear from switching with engine off?
ps:i could do it when i just turned off the car from N to P for example to get the key off the fob, but when the car has been off for a while and try to change it from P to R, the light came off.
