White or light gray smoke could be an indication the head gasket is leaking or even blown. The motor will also run hot and you lose cooling fluid. I would not use the car for any other ride then straight to the repair shop.

I bet the problem can be corrected by installing a new or repaired Transmission computer

Well since the lights are controlled by the OBD (on board diagnostics), you'll have to reset it. You may be able to do this by simply disconnecting the battery for a few hours. However, a lot of newer vehicles have electronically locked radios which require the manual to be able to be re-enabled.

I'd check out the radio before disconnecting the battery.

The only other ways are to physically disconnect the lights in the dash or get someone with an OBD reader to clear the codes.

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

Changing the ratio could be causing the computer to miscalculate the speed. Try ruling out the sensors (by seeing if it stays engaged while in fourth gear.)

2007 frontier, won't start following transmission failure


run fault codes and look for a TCM failure. Most vehicles have an oil cooler for the transmission in the radiator and it is known that the cooler develops leaks and the coolant gets into the transmission oil or the oil gets into the coolant. This problem is for all makes and is not ford only. The solution is to fit air to air aftermarket oil coolers

U are going to need to overhaul the transmission here, the smoke is the trans overheating from excessive slippage i suspect.code for wrong gear ratio's mean the input and output shaft speed are out of symc for the gear the trans is in, the 3rd or 4th gear is the usual codes, this sometimes is caused by defective speed sensors but most times the trans is slipping and the TCM detects that and sets a code
