Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has had this error message on a 2015> Auto Cooper S.

Currently every time we switch the car off, we get an amber warning message "Transmission" Secure vehicle with parking brake when stationary. Have the problem checked by Service. I had a friend run a diagnostic tool on the car, which wont clear the error. On the tool it says "Shiftlock solenoid selector lever wrongly not locked in P" code 4201 06.

BMW have taken a look and quoted for a new control unit at £958+VAT to replace.

I need to add that there is nothing wrong with the car - the auto box works fine, it selects "P" without any issue and is engaged ok as I cannot move the car even with the handbrake off.

Im based in Berkshire, Reading, UK.

Many Thanks

Dave

Hello,

I am receiving the same error message on my 2015 Auto Cooper S. I don't have an issue continuing to drive with the error message since nothing is wrong with the vehicle and I pull the hand break when I park. However, I do need to clear the message so I can use the vehicle for a driving practical test. Has anyone had success resolving or clearing the error message without spending £1k for an entirely new control unit, which seems a bit excessive for a solenoid selector?

Cheers.
