Problems with voltage on my 03 325I, SES light on with code P0700 and P1892. Pls help

Hi, my car is 2003 325i with 82k miles. At first, when I was driving, my car comes up with DCS, ABS, Battery lights ( most of the sensor lights on the board) . Then if I turn off the car, it will not start again, and it needs a jump to start ( sounds like it doesn't have enough power to start ). Sometimes it has a ( ! ) beside the D on the dashboard, and it needs to restart for the (!) to goes off; otherwise the transmission will not shift correctly. I have the car checked voltage and it was OK. I don't know what happened to it. I changed the battery from BMW dealer --> No luck . Then I tried to replace the alternator ---> No luck too , and also the SES light is ON right now with the ( ! ) beside the D ( needs to restart every time to get it off). I pulled out the codes P0700 and P1892 from the SES light. Problems usually occurred when I start the car in cold morning. Any ideas for me at all ???

P0700 is a generic code that means the transmission controller is unhappy. P1892 is a unique code that BMW uses for some purpose that is undefined as far as I can tell. You can save this link as a Favorite

The (!) symbol in the gear indicator window means that the transmission is on the fritz, the P0700 confirms it. You need a technician to plug into the data link connector (the large round connector next to the right side shock tower in the engine bay. The data link connector will tell the technician what the problem is, and the information available there is more detailed that the information you can extract from the OBD II connector.
