Question about Nikon Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S for Digital SLR
At longer focal lengths, when the aperture is smaller, and in low light, many A/F zoom lenses struggle. Is it OK outdoors in daylight ? If so, lens is OK.

You may have a dirty contact on the tc cpu pins. Try cleaning the pins with a clean pencil eraser or some methanol. You could also have a loose connection between the tc and the lens or body. Try applying a rotational force in both directions...see if you notice any change in behavior. If you have a local shop, see if you can try another copy on your lens.
The 17e may have slow-ish performance in low light, but it should still be usable. If neither of these issues is apparent then it may need to be exchanged or serviced.

Hi, I had this problem and found that the level inside the camera for the exposure shutter was bent inwards. This was preventing the lens from adjusting the exposure and also from autofocusing. To fix I just bent it back outwards

I experienced the exact same problem with my 100-300mm lens and I was never able to get it to work correctly again. In fact, attempting to use it further seemed to exacerbate the problem.
The further you zoom, the wider the aperture opens allowing more light for the camera to focus properly. If the aperture mechanism is damaged, the auto-focus process may not work as it should; which would explain why the auto-focus feature works only when at 18mm.
Regardless, I strongly recommend you discontinue use of the lens until a professional technician can examine the lens and figure out what's going on. I'm sure you can contact the manufacturer to open a support case or you can find a camera store that offers repair services.
I hope this helps!

I had the exact same problem, took it to a repair shop, and they said the motor had to be replaced completely for $140! The lens is only 18 months old and was not used THAT much! Argh.
