while driving on the freeway i notice my overdrive light coming on and off. and plus my abs & traction light comes on too. does anybody know the reason why my overdrive light comes on and off. and as for my abs & traction light its always been coming on and off. but still cant find the issue to it too. if anybody knows i can use the help thanks.
if it is flashing, its a warning for tranny problems, if it just comes on stays on then goes off idk, one thing you can do is check fluid level (must be in park while running to check it accurately) and i had that problem with the light flashing after some unnecessary stress lol changed fluid and filter never had a problem since after 15000+ miles as for the others check the owners man. it has a list of what the lights mean for each action they do, solid flashing etc. good luck!!
yesterday night after arriving at my destination i park my car and opened the hood and let it cool down. after 5 to 10 mins of letting it cooled down i started the car back up again and there was nomore flashing lights or anything. i even drove it to a friends house and i didnt see anything. there was no overdrive light coming on or off. and even the abs light went off by itself. maybe i should lift up my car and try my best to change my fluids. thats the only thing i could think of at the moment. if anybody else has any ideas im open to ideas thanks.
changing fluid in tranny is pretty easy, just make sure you have something big enough to catch all the fluid that falls as it may come out both sides lol, just pop off tray and let the fluid go and once it stops filter is right there on bottem so its really easy to do just pop on new filter slap the pan back on and put in new fluid, and check it before you drive should be right around 5qts. get an extra one just in case
