My Ride: 2002 M3 Convertible
2002 M3 Convertible Electrical/Engine Shutdown

Hoping someone here can shed some light. I am the original owner of the car. I have less than 27K miles on the car. Yes hard to believe.

Recently I came across this problem. As I down shift to 1st gear to come to a stop, the engine shuts down, no warning light, no indication of any problem. the lights on the dash are still on. I have to then put the car back in neutral and start it back up. It does so with no issue.

It has happened 2 days in a row now.

Has anyone else come across this?

I am coming across the same issue right now. When mine does it my clock resets and sometimes you have to wait a couple seconds to get it started again

Down shift to 2nd to stop , let the computer put you in 1st and see if it still happens , since you can start from a stop in 2nd I see no reason to shift to 1st while still moving ? I mean unless your crawling and need the revs I guess ? Good luck
