Here is what it was....one of the wires to the kickdown switch had been pinched (by what I don't know) and thus the switch was not working properly. My car now will rev to 6200rpms in 1st before shifting and downshift properly. I can finally get all the car has off the line. So watch out bimmers, and yes, you too C36 and C43!!!!
Thanks to all that helped,
