Hi .

Many issue can cause the transmission not to change , you probably find you are in limp mode which happens when the management system encounters a malfunction with in the system .

What you will have to do is get your car hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes .

With the malfunction codes you will know what has malfunctioned and be able to repair what has failed .

You will have to check out your local garage and ask if they are equipped to check your Beema ,if not then a trip to your local dealer as the malfunction codes you need to get are manufacture codes .

If you need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me .
