Check the fluid level, or it may be a loose wire. if not them. take car to have transmission codes scanned. have a good day !! it may just need to be reset. ( the o/d light ). see if they can turn light off at any auto parts store. if it can be done, they will not charge you for scanning.

Got 02 Taurus and transmission light on but it changing no problem

the transmission light in some vehicles may also serve as a maintenance reminder to let you know it is time to check or change your transmission fluid, or to take your vehicle to the dealer for regular maintenance. A problem with a transmission temperature sender may be the culprit if the light comes on or flashes only before the vehicle has warmed up to operating temperature. A light that flickers or comes on only when hitting bumps on the roadway may indicate a loose transmission wiring connection or a bare wire. Good-Day!

My Transmission light comes on, what does this mean? since I only just had a transmission fluid flush

the light only comes on when a fualt is sensed in the operation of the transmission by the transmission control computer, there are dozens of poss faults so it is key to get the system tested for the code that is stored when this light flashes

You need to have the transmission serviced at a Transmission shop. There is a problem with one of the Solenoids in the Transmission.

My hold button flashes and seems like the car drags i have a 93 mazda mx6 what could be the problem

the hold light flashing is just like a check engine light but for the transmission. If your hold light is flashing it sounds like a selanoid went bad and your clutchs inside your transmission is coming apart.

The o/d light flashes and the check engine light is on. The car has had no other problems, just started on Saturday. What could it be? My mechanic cleared the computer but suggested that I take it to a...

The transmission in your car is a GF4A-EL. The cooling capacity is weak. Many owners have installed auxillary coolers. Fluid should be changed every 2 yrs. or 30,000 miles. If you take your car to Advanced Auto or Autozone they will, for free, identify what code or codes are causing the check engine light to come on. More than likely you will have a P code that is pointing at the transmission. Any additional information is always usefull. Perhaps the transmission is overheating; If you plan on keeping the car I would suggest that you have an auxillary cooler installed. Also have the fluid changed. Let me know how you make out.
