BMW 328i Transmission Gear Selector Lighted Indicator Is Wrong

I have a 2000 328i. The lighted indicator is fouled up. When in Park it lights up the 2. In Reverse, it lights up P & N. In N or D, it lights up R & D. In 4, it lights up P & R. In 3, it lights up P, R, N, and 4. In 2, it lights up P, R, N, and D. Do any of you know how to fix this?

Does this car have the steptronic transmission? I assume it does. Are you referring to the indicator on the gauge cluster incorrectly displaying the gear you’re in? Does it do this when you shift manually starting in first gear?

It is an automatic. The display is on the console between the seats. I don’t think it is steptronic. You just move the handle forward and backward through P, R, N, D, 3, 2 like most automatics.
