The check transmission illuminates if a fault is detected in the transmission.

There are many areas in the trans control system that will make the light come on or flash. You will want to have the codes read to see what area the problem is in. Normally Autozone will read the codes for free and even tell you the area of concern, as well as clear the code out of the computer.

When we know the code(s) then we will have a better understanding as to what the cause may be. Thanks
