    The EGS is part of the monitor system of the transmission. Probably notices a malfunction in the trans and going into a Fail-Safe mode to prevent damage to tranny. Have it tested at a repair facility before it cost you more with continued driving.

    The EGS talks to the TCM & monitors the driving conditions of trans. Sounds like a pressure sensor our other electrical problem. Get it scanned to make sure.
