Default Stuck in Park

I was waiting for someone thought is was going to be quick so had my brake
on was nervously pumping the brake pedal it turned into a 20 minute wait so
I put it in park turned the car off. When i started the car back up the transmission warning/limp home mode came on and i could not get it out of park. I called AAA the driver came out and showed me how to get it out of park so i limped home about 2 miles. And now still stays in park have not driven it
since. I have never had any transmission problems no slipping all was good til now cant see how it would go without warning?

Welcome to the group. based on what I read, it looks like you haven't done much to research the issue with your car. my suggestion would be to first scan your car with a suitable scanner for codes. a scanner which has software designed particularly for bmw would be best. you didn't give much information in your post. what year is your car manufactured? its likely the bmw dealer can pull codes from your key. you may want to call or pop by your local dealer and see what they can do. you can purchase bmw specific scanners on the internet for around a hundred bux or maybe post on craigslist for help from someone with a scanner...good luck

Bad shifter safety? seeing as most modern cars require holding the brake before you can shift outta park..
