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.

This usually indicates a fault has been detected by the computer with one or more of the transmission components are at fault.What needs to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out/checked to see what codes are set.This is done with a scan tool that will plug in and communicate with all computers in your vehicle.Once this has been done any codes set will need diagnosed and repaired.

This can be a range of different components causing this fault here from a faulty sensor or solenoid in the transmission or an issue with the valve body itself or even more in depth mechanical issues in the transmission.The codes will need checked to help pinpoint the fault here for repair.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.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.

Thanks Pete
