Q: "Gear may be engaged. Drive moderately."

Hi there. Sounds like you might be having an internal transmission issue. Automatic transmissions have many sensors and solenoids as well as valves, bands and clutches that are responsible for proper operation.

Sometimes, partial disassembly is required for a proper diagnosis.
