Check your oil condition and level for any signs of dark or discolored oil as well as for any metal or debris in your oil and filters that would indicate an internal mechanical failure or problem occurring that would require further disassembly for inspection for repair or rebuild. Check your gear shifter for proper operation as well. Be sure to check all of your fuses and relays and any safety switches and wiring as well. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
