Question about Cars & Trucks
Vehicle just had a transmission service, but the trouble code was for the engine. the warning light has not come on yet.
What was the code number? If the engine light didn't come on then it may have rectified itself and there really isn't a problem. Put the code reader on again and see if there is still a code in the memory.

I had a similar issue and started to notice other electrical failures along with the gas gauge. My rear doors would not lock and my rear wiper stopped working. I started pulling fuses and relays to see if this would reset, no go. But then I hit the jackjpot. In the rear electrical panel, below all the fuses and relays is a 2" x 2" black plastic square with a big screw in it.
Remove the screw and pull evenly on the black square. This seems to be a major electrical hub for the car. I reconnected and all 3 of my issues disappeared...I read somewhere that a fix might be to disconnect the battery for a few minutes, which I guess re-sets some relays and circuits, but I guess this did the same thing. Good luck.

The reason it is suggested to take it to the dealer is that the tranmission fluid is a synthetic. There is no serviceable filter on your transmission. For a drain and fill (3.5 Quarts) the fluid itself is about 70 bucks. To flush it is around 350-400 depending on where you take it. You can use a Mobil equivelant fluid ATF 3309 that has the same specs. Biggest thing to watch out for is to make sure it is filled THROUGH THE DIPSTICK TUBE, no where else. The dipstick is kind of hard to see but its there, right behind the grill, to the left of the air box.

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
