Thanks, ***** ***** on is for the transaxle. This means there are codes stored. Do you know these codes and can you do transaxle repairs? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen you should see a rating 1-5 stars. Please make sure to select one. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris

I put the diagnóstic machine but no codes show me. I send you two pictures one show a circle like a star. And the other picture show on the right side like a tank engine what means those signs?
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.
I just saw the uploads you sent.Image one is battery and oil light, that is because the engine is not running which i can tell by the tachometer.Image two is the transaxle warning light. A transmission compatible scan tool is needed to get trans codes, those tools start around 1200$. Are you using a tool like that?

No a friend borrow me.

Until we can get the correct scan tool on it, we will not be able to get this correctly diagnosed prior to working on the transaxle.
