My Ride: 2003 BMW 325xi
Help! Trac control, abs, brake light, eml and gear light all came on at once

Hi everyone,

I changed my CCV valve 4 days ago on my automatic 2003 BMW 325xi and after I started it up for the first time it ran great. The next though, while driving on the highway, it beeped downshifted, and the dashboard lights for the traction control, brake (in yellow), the abs and the eml all lit up. After this the car accelerated really slowly and seemed to not be able to figure what gear it should be in and was shifting really rough. I thought that this may be due to me cleaning the throttle body when it was out and from what I could find driving it makes the throttle body get unstuck. The few times I turned it there were no lights or problems until the car warmed up. Then the car would downshift and beep and the dashboard would light up again and it would start running badly.

Today when I turned the car on, along with the trac control, brake, abs and eml lights there was a gear with an ! in it next to the P for park. I don't know if I could have accidentally bumped something loose or broke something while hassling with my CCV or if this is a completely different problem. Anyone have any clue on what could be wrong with my car?
