Like 7th and 8th are overdrive gears on the 8AT
I would bet that BMW would be more than smart enough that shorts are able to be located, and the failsafe mode would allow you to shift into any gear possible.

I highly doubt that an electrical system implemented in one of the most important parts of the mechanics of the car will be inhibited by a simple short in a circuit.
