Dieseljunky2 :

Hello, that means that your transmission or one of the speed sensors the transmission uses for information has a problem. The flashing is letting you there are trouble codes stored in the computer. The only way to find out what codes are there are to hook up to the diagnostic connector and check them. Some autoparts will read the codes for free. If your local autoparts does this, then you can tell me the codes and we can figure out the problem. Thanks
