Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The hold light flashing means the computer system is seeing a system fault and because the transmission is not shifting properly its likely a transmission concern. In order to know where to start you are going to need to retrieve the fault code and or codes first. To do so, jump the TAT terminal to ground or the GND terminal in the engine compartment diagnoses box and count the flashing pattern of the Hold light. Once you have the fault code and or codes post back and we can work from there.

The code 12 indicates a problem with the throttle position sensor and or the circuit to it. See the chart in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.
