My Ride: E60 / X5 F15 35d
SMG problem

2004 530i SMG 162 352km
Transmission still acting crazy.

I get the transmission error and Increased Emission error.

Scanned the car and indicated to be the Angle Selection Sensor. Changed that....Erased codes and Scanned the car, same code Angle selection sensor.. Wanted to reprogram the transmission but i cannot do anything because i have the transmission error.

Switching connectors from Shift Pattern Sensor (SP) to Angle Selection Sensor (AS) and from AS to SP the error moves to Shift Pattern Sensor.
The question is: Is the signal sent from ECU to the Sensor or the other way around?

I know the question sounds stupid but the right answer indicates exactly what the problem is.
Because, if the signal starts from ECU (salmon or orange relay) that means the harness from ECU to sensor has a short. If the signal is sent from Sensor to ECU m
eans there is something wrong inside transmission where Selection Angle Sensor is connected.

So far i changed salmon and orange relays. Fixed slave cylinder leak. Replaced SA sensor. Spent about $1500 and the car its been parked for almost 1 year....
And i also received a manual transmission instead of an used SMG.

Now I got a 2014 x5 F15.....but when i look at my E60 i feel like this
