Wiring issues in the transmission control system
To solve this issue, a mechanic would typically perform a visual inspection of the transmission system and check the fluid level and condition. They may also perform a scan of the vehicle's computer system to retrieve any stored codes and freeze frame data. Further diagnosis may be necessary, such as road testing the vehicle or using a scan tool to check the operation of the transmission control system components. In some cases, the transmission may need to be disassembled for a more thorough inspection. If a specific component is found to be faulty, such as a worn gear or a malfunctioning solenoid, it will need to be replaced.
