2012 330i shifter malfunction

Guys I've been experiencing an issue with my 2012 330i E90. When driving for more than 30 minutes suddenly the car goes into limp mode, the orange gear shows in dash and the transmission stays in 4th gear (or that's what I think)

According to my scan tool this is because of a DTC 5658: EGS Gearbox position sensor malfunction.

The weird thing is that if I turn off the car and back on the car works fine for maybe an additional 20 minutes - 40 minutes and then the code goes back, also if I clear the code with the scanner it goes away until shows up again.

The shifter has been working fine, it goes into each position including manual without issues. A weird thing that I've noticed about this is since it's happening sometime the charging voltage spikes to 14.8V - 15.2, already tried with three different batteries and no luck but most of the time the charge stays in the range of 13.5V - 14.3V

I'm not sure what should I've been looking for, I'm not sure if the voltage spikes could be causing this or is just a coincidence. About the voltage spikes I can't tell if that's because of a bad voltage regulator because most of the time the voltage is always less than 14.5V
