good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
is the check engine light on??? is the overdrive light blinking???
yes, it will work but remember it is a used transmission and could be a bad trans.
a scan tool will be required to monitor operation of the trans.
the battery light is an indication of a failing alternator. the alternator may be working for now but still could have an issue. voltage checks need to be done to check and see what is going on.
computer is the very last item to be considered. it just sends information based on a lot of inputs from sensors.
