Hi .

This is a typical issue when washing engine and transmissions with high power washers .this should be avoided at all cost on the car engines of today that are fully electronically run operated.

If you are lucky all you need to do is disconnect the sensors on the top and side of the transmission and dry out with compressed air then spray contact cleaner on the connections and sensors .

First disconnect the battery negative post before doing this job.

When dry and clean reconnect al lthe sensors and connections and reconnect the battery and test drive .

If the "N" light is still on or flashing replace the input speed sensor,

Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
