E90 M3 Shift Lever Malfunction

Hey everyone

So I purchased my first M3 back in march and have had it for a couple of months now. haven't had any issues with it and have been on top of maintenance. Just this morning when I started up the car and threw it into gear I got a error code saying "Possible malfunction in the shift lever." From there the car wouldn't go into any gear other than reverse or neutral. Now I live in Florida and we don't get cold weather down here very often. but we did have a cold front come through last night and I was curious if that could have something to do with the contacts inside the shiftier. Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

I had this happen one time with my car. I turned it off for 5 minutes and back on. All was fine and it never occurred again. I think it happened because I was so quick to shift into reverse on startup.

I second this.. no codes. May have been driver malfunction.

Intermittent malfunction. Carry on. If it continues then look at replacing the assembly. BMW made some internal changes to the DCT shifter so there is a new and old version of the part, FYI.
