When these lights are flashing, this means the transmission control module has detected a fault with the transmission. There are several faults the module can detect, from a bad sensor to a failed transmission. The next step is to have a shop check the diagnostic codes and perform the appropriate troubleshooting that accompanies those codes. Here are some in your area that may be able to help: Once you find out what the code is and the recommendation from the shop, post back here and I can give you an idea if there on the right track. Good Luck!
