The flashing arrow means there is a code in the transmission control module.

You car is in limp mode. It is trying to prevent more damage.

If you have an OBD port in front of the shifter you can try using a scan tool to read codes.

Other wise you can use these instructions to check the codes under the hood.
Use socket A5 for the transmission.

Let me know what code you get and I can give you the definition.
