Other symptoms may include an illuminated Check Engine and transmission shift light. and the speedometer may stop working as well.

Note: The brake system will operate normally however during a panic stop the Anti Lock Brakes will not work and the wheels may lock-up, causing a lack of vehicle control under these situations.
