    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.

    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.
