Will not move in any gear, not even neutral. Has a blinking neutral light and service engine light is on. Seems to get stuck in park even though it will go in to each gear, but won't move
I have a automatic F4A42 transmission. Reverse works, and I can shift manual 1st and second. When shifted to D only the 1st gear works and when I speed up in goes into 3rd (limp mode) and N light flashes. It stops when I switch off engine and re-start. I just replaced TCU computer but still doesn't help.
The car drives and goes in reverse but gets stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear and the neutral light flashes. Dont have any codes yet.
The car would not move unless I rev it up for around 20. it also rips in motorway when I slow down.
Won't go into any gear
