Can I have the last six of your VIN? Did the warnings go off after you turned off the vehicle and restarted it? Did you notice if we lost the gear illumination on the shifter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
M83674. The warning went off after restart and its goes back to transmission fault after running couple of miles especially if I accelerate quick. No lost of gear illumination on the shifter however, if you put the gear to park, the P flashes.

Ok sorry for the delay.

This does sound like it may be electrical like possibly a problem with the TCM valve body. The first step would be to check the fluid level and condition as low fluid from a leak in the pan or cooler pipes can cause this. Since there is no dipstick this is not easily done as a fill/level check plug is removed with the fluid warmed, engine running and vehicle on a level surface or lift. We also will need to have the vehicle scanned for the stored fault codes to be sure. Let me know.
