My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

With the check engine light and transmission service required light on this indicates a fault is detected with one of the transmission components in most cases.The anti lock brake system most likely has a fault code as well.This may be an issue with a failing wheel speed sensor as this will cause erratic shifting issues here if one or more of the wheel speed sensors is sending an incorrect wheel speed signal.

What has to be done here is to have the fault codes read out of the anti lock brake computer as well as the engine/transmission computer using a scan tool that will plug into your vehicle and can communicate with all computers to see what codes are set.Once this is done the codes can be diagnosed to locate and repair the fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
