Infinity G20 '99 transmission does not shift from 1-2 or 2-3 gear until 3200 RPM & shifts very hard, fluid is clean & full. It has 216,000 miles and problem started this morning just as I pulled out of driveway and put it in D it shifted hard and jerked the car and then each gear changed just as hard at a much higher RPM.

Ok
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Ryan, Are you still researching or are you leaning toward more than one problem. I found a vacuum line broken off at the air tube between the the air filter and the air intake/choke plate. I still have not repaired line or started the engine.
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
Still researching I had a feeling this is more then one problem. How long has the light been on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Light has been on for at least 3 months.
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
Okay that's plenty of time for other problems to arise. Did this light come on when this problem first occurred?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No this transmission problem problem (late to shift) is what caused me to park it and contact you for assistance.
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
Alright I will have A few things for you to check How handy are you with cars?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am very handy with cars, I already replaced the front and rear seals on this car.
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
Ok I am curious as to what codes are stored in the transmission system. Do you have access to a scan tool?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have access to a OBD2 Tool
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
We need one that can do more then pull engine codes. I think your shifting problem has something to do with your throttle position sensor. I would like to know what failure code is in the transmission system. Have you noticed if the OD light flashes just after start up?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it stared flashing the day before the problem started.
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
Ok so there is a failure code set. I will find the manual procedure to pull flash codes. I will post it tomorrow.

Good night

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Just as you previously thought, the third judgement flicker was longer, "go to throttle position sensor"
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 years ago.
Ok great! I may have your answer I was looking at the wiring diagram and found a common link for most of these codes. Please check the 10 Amp fuse #7 in the fuse box in the car. I think you will find it blown. Try replacing the fuse and see if it will hold. If it blows right away let me know. Here is the location.
