Hi welcome to just answers. My name is ***** ***** I will try my best to help you with this problem, when you said the battery is low all of a sudden, is it because you tested the battery for low voltage or the light on the dash indicates a low voltage?
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
Reason why I ask is because this gear light can also be trigger by battery low voltage. Does the engine starts fine?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
the last 2 weeks i have had problems with the engine starting ok... the gear light turned on for the first time a year ago
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
The gear light indicates serious problems this can be the transmission or the ETC Throttle Control. Does the engine light turns on also?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
no
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
But it can also be as simple as a bad battery
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
When you said you had problems with the engine starting do you mean it crank and won't start
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
when the light is on my gears do slip when shifting
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
Ok then yes that is the transmission sleeping gears this will cause overheating of the fluid and the gear light will turn on, how men's miles does the vehicle has?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
79k
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
Have you check the fluid condition and level?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
fluid has been checked and filled
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
Ok then yes your transmission is having problems internally and will need to be repair or replace.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ok thanks
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
When the clutches on the transmission were out they slip and burn releasing clutch particles in to the fluid stream that goes in to your torte converter and valve body causing damage until the transmission stops moving this is what's happening with yours at the moment is just starting to fail it will get wors and stop moving.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
i will have that looked at then
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 4 months ago.
