Well this is definitely indicative of a transmission malfunction - however to find out exactly what that is will require *hands-on* testing by qualified personnel.

It is moot for us to post any of the possibilities as automobile repair skills will be required to perform the most basic testing - therefore is is highly recommended to seek *hands-on* assistance from qualified personnel for proper diagnosis..

Additionally - it is not necessarily an “electrical” malfunction - a comprehensive professional scan test is invaluable - anything less than that is simply guessing at it!

Good luck!
