My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received 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.

If you have not had the fault codes checked/read out at all this needs done.If there is a code set the code will need diagnosed to help locate and repair this issue here.I have seen issues with the transmission valve body and fluid pump that can cause this fault.If no codes are set the transmission will need tested further to help pinpoint and repair this fault here.This will usually require special test equipment to test the transmission to locate the fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.
