I spilled water on my gear shifter earlier today and now the transmission has a mind of its own. When in park, the D light flashes. When in D, the car automatically switches itself between D and Manual and automatically shifts gears as though in M. Has anyone ever had this happen? Any advice?
My car is automatically shifting its gears. Please help! on 2004 Acura TSX

Just had my 528 BMW repaired for same problem. I thought it would be the transmission (and plenty $$$$). It was the "gear gadget" which was separate from the trans...it basically wears out and acquires a mind of its own. My cost was about $400 parts and labor @ $75.00/hr. Good luck and hope it's cheaper for you!
