Smg cog light after car wash???? Can water be a factor?
Hello guys I'm new to the forum although I've spent countless hours reading many threads posted. Despite reading literally 30 SMG cog light problem posts, I've still felt the need to start this quick thread. So some background about the car, It's a 2004 e46 m3 convertible with an SMG transmission and 95000klms on the clock. About a month ago I had the cog light come on and the car was dropping in and out of gears, We replaced the gear selector sensor And the relay This fixed the problem. (Thanks to this forum Just yesterday I washes the car in the driveway after quite a spirited drive And about an hour later left for a journey Of course when I started the car my SMG Cog light was displayed Although absolutely no driving problems whatsoever for about an hour's journey through peak hour traffic the whole time the light on. After reaching my journey when I turned on and off the car the light was gone. The car was used for a small seen in a movie and was driven forwards and backwards about 30 times without another single problem or the SMG light been displayed. I drove it All the way back home with no I have no problems. I have booked in to see my local Indy who fixed the sensors but My main question is has anyone had any similar sorts of problems related to water issues or something along those lines And is this even a feasible thought?
