95 bmw 525i.... transmission issues and more

I just bought a 95 BMW 525i with auto tranny. The car does not seem to be shifting and the tranny goes into protection mode. What could the problem be and is there an easy fix for this type of tranny
issue.
The front right and left rear window does not roll up nor down. I could hear the motor spinning but no movement of the glasss. PLUS the Both front seats are not functional at all. I find it weird that both seats would not be working at the same time, thats why I suspect fuse or relay. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE RELAY/FUSE FOR THE SEATS ARE LOCATED?

First thing to check is the voltage at the gearbox ECU - if this is low for any reason, poor connections, alternator or battery fault etc, one of the first symptoms of this is the gearbox going into limp home mode.

Where is the ECU located. I have been having problem with the electrical charging system. When I remove the lead from the battery while the car is running it shuts off immediately. I had the alternater checked by autozone and its fine. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE AND QUICK RESPONSE.

You should *never* remove a battery connection with the engine running. The volts can go sky high and fry things. Start the car, and check the battery voltage after about 15 minutes running and report what it is.

What he meant was start the car run it for 15 minutes, **stop the engine** and report what the voltage is.

BTW taking the battery lead off while the engine was running has probably done for a lot of the electronics :-(((

I'd suggest seeing a professional. It really sounds as if you're out of your depth here - and you're causing more damage trying to fix it than there was to start with. 15.26V is WAY too high - with engine running or not. You may have an alternator problem rather than a transmission problem, but asking for help via the net is asking for guesses by people who aren't near your car.
See a dealer. That's what I'd suggest you try next.

Assuming you have an accurate voltmeter that's way out of tolerance. Hopefully when that's rectified by a new regulator the transmission fault will go too. The voltage should stabilise at 13.8v after a few minutes running assuming a decent battery in a good state of charge.
