    You may need to have the transmission inspected, it sounds like it is having problems. If the display is showing gear changes, that usually means that the gear selector switch is being moved by the cable. I would have someone move the lever and then you can look in to the engine compartment and see if the selector lever is moving on the transmission. But to be safe, do it with the key on and the engine OFF.

    here are some shops to help you:
