Hello, my name is John.

Typically when the 'Drive' light flashes it indicates a fault code is stored in the transmission computer for a transmission fault. Unfortunately, I cannot guess which of the possible faults are making the light come on. If you can have the transmission codes read I can provide information about them. In the mean time, if you are not noticing any problems with the way your car is driving then the problem must be one that the transmission computer can work around to keep you going until you can have it checked.

Please let em know if I can do anything further to help.
