It could be. The inhibitor switch is like a park/neutral switch, part of the starting circuit.

What is the "Hold" button for on the '93 Mazda Protege gear shift? (A light that says, "Hold" keeps blinking on and off on my dashboard...I'm assuming they are somehow related?)


hold is used to hold the gears longer in an auto like sports shift mode on newer cars, it should come on and then switch off at start up unless you have it engaged, if its continuingly blinking you have an issue with your gearbox as the auto box will run its own little self diagnostic on start up

Auto transmition wont go into 3rd and 4th gear


I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist

Mazda Sentia 929 auto failure


Rebuilt gearbox probably... unfortunately!
If the HOLD light in the in strument cluster is flashing at you, it is giving you a transmission diagnostic code (like a kind of Morse Code). A transmission specialist or a Mazda Dealer will be able to read this code and plug their computer into the cars computer, and tell you what is wrong.

Auto Gear does not change smoothly


I think he's referring to the valve body which is the hydraulic part of the gearbox assembly. Can only replace it.

Subaru Gearbox problem


there might be more than one issue here. its common for the early auto transmissions to not have the extra shims added to the center differential. This causes binding for the front axles and can damage a few parts. There was a recall for this many years ago. The other possibility is the valve body is manufunctioning and not fully engaging the gear your selecting. The fix is to get the valve body overhauled/rebuilt or replaced
