SOURCE: 1994 lexus 300 will not shift but will shift if i manually shift

If the transmission "brain" in modern cars senses problems it can keep the tranny from shifting. Usually leaves you in second gear as a safety and warning indication. I don't now if that year lexus had this ability but getting it checked on a diagnostic computer that read transmission codes should shed some light on your situation.

First check fluid level. is check engine light on? is speedometer working? this can be caused by a malfuncition vehicle speed sensor or a mechanical condition such as a clogged filtre.

check your upper control arms, does it happen when you step on the brakes or just when driving, you might need a balance of all your wheels or the tires you have could be bad.

SOURCE: I have a 92 Honda accord Automatic Ex, the d4

That is a fault indication for your transmission. I am not positive but I think that indicates a fault in your forth gear solenoid. Your transmission is not going to last very long driving it like that. When you stomp on the gas and it does not accelerate, your clutch discs are slipping and burning. It won't take much of that to ruin them. You may want to take it to a good Honda transmission place. I don't know about the older Hondas, but the newer ones don't have any provision for removing a pan and working on them. They don't even have a line replacable filter.
Check your transmission fluid dipstick. If its not a nice "bright" red color, you are probably burning up your clutches. The darker the fluid, the more contaminated it is.

I have a 2009 GMC Acadia. What should the ERS mode be in on a normal basis?


Driver Shift Control (DSC) or Electronic Range Selection (ERS): This position (M-Manual / L-Low) allows the driver to utilize the DSC/ERS system. When the shift selector lever is moved to this position, the driver may select upshifts or downshifts by using the paddle switches located on the steering wheel/shifter. An upshift is requested by pushing either + button. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for more specific DSC/ERS information.
Driver Shift Control (DSC)/Electronic Range Selection (ERS)
Refer to the owner's manual for specific instructions on DSC. The TCM will override shift commands when maximum engine speed is achieved and will protect from any downshift which may cause excessive engine RPMs.

Electronic Range Select (ERS) Mode
ERS mode allows you to choose the top-gear limit of the transmission and the vehicle's speed while driving down hill or towing a trailer. The vehicle has an electronic shift position indicator within the instrument panel cluster. When using the ERS Mode a number will display next to the L, indicating the current gear that has been selected.
To use this feature:
Move the shift lever to L (Low).
Press the plus/minus button located on the shift lever, to increase or decrease the gear range available.
When you shift from D (Drive) to L (Low), the transmission will shift to a pre-determined lower gear range. The highest gear available for this pre-determined range is displayed next to the L in the DIC. See Driver Information Center (DIC) and DIC Operation and Displays for more information. The number displayed in the DIC is the highest gear that the transmission will be allowed to operate in. This means that all gears below that number are available. For example, when 4 (Fourth) is shown next to the L, 1 (First) through 4 (Fourth) gears are automatically shifted by the vehicle. the transmission will not shift into 5 (Fifth) until the + (Plus) button is used or you shift back into D (Drive).
While in L (Low), the transmission will prevent shifting to a lower gear range if the engine speed is too high. You have a brief period of time to slow the vehicle. If vehicle speed is not reduced within the time allowed, the lower gear range shift will not be completed. You must further slow the vehicle, then press the - (Minus) button to the desired lower gear range.
Automatic Engine Grade braking is not available when the ERS is active. It is available in D (Drive) for both normal and Tow/Haul mode. While using the ERS, cruise control and the tow/haul mode can be used. See Tow/Haul Mode for more information.

Supposed be moving when shifting into 4 low or 4 high, think it's a limit of 4 miles per hour, maybe a bit higher or lower speeds, owner's manual has instructions. Bad shift solenoid or relay? Has fuse/ relay checked out?

Why when i put in drive and go it goes into 1 or2 or drive by it self while driving


It always starts out in first, it's a 3 speed automatic, that's what automatics do. they start out in first and at about 15-20 miles per hour , they shift to second gear, and when the speed is about 35-45 MPH, the transmission automatically shifts into third gear, or Drive.

Bigger automatics have 4 or more speeds. Till recently, 4 speeds were the norm, and fourth gear was often dubbed Overdrive, as it allowed the engine to run slower in 4th gear, than it had to maintain speed in 3rd gear, drive. It's good, it increases your mileage per gallon of gas, so you save that way, but like all things more complicated, they cost more to fix when something goes wrong.

Check vehicle speed sensor, or ABS wheel speed sensor,
and the wiring going to sensors.Speed sensor should be on side of trans mission.

Does overdrive effect the gas usage in a 2003 Ford Focus


Yes. Overdrive helps get better milage in all vehicles. It is simply put, just an extra gear. When you go through 1st, then 2nd, 3rd, then OD (in automatic - 5th gear in manual)

All it does is allow the engine to run at lower speed while maintaining crusing speed. It does not have a lot of power, it's notsupposed to. It is to save fuel at higher speeds, particularly over distance travel..

In city driving it can slow the changing of gears. Better to turn it off for more low speed control.

Two problems with '97 Pontiac Bonneville 1: automatic transmission does not shift into higher gear at correct time as it once did, resulting in engine running in higher rpms before gear shift occurs. 2:...


You may have low vacuum pressure which can screw up the fuel regulator as well as shift points. I would start by checking for vacuum at idle, and if low, check for a disconnected, broken or kinked hose.

Have a 2005 Maxima that shakes at the wheel at 45 mph up to 60 mph, I inspected my inner and outher tie rods and they are fine the alinement is fine, tires are new and balanced, brakes were replaced aswell...


It may be that one of your front wheel rims is slightly buckled. You can try swapping each with your spare wheel then test drive and see if this eliminates the problem.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.
