My car has 123000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It’s difficult to say for certain, but I would be very suspicious of any accessories that are wired into the system. Your car has about a half dozen or more modules controlling everything from engine and transmission functions to brakes, lights, locks, and horns. They are in constant communication with each other even when the car is off via the Control Area Network (CAN) Introducing any accessories into this system is bound to create some electronic confusion. Any diagnosis would start with scanning all of the car’s modules for codes, but having something else in the system like a LowJack might introduce some false codes and confuse things even more. If you want some help with this you can contact Your Mechanic to have a technician come to your home or office to check out your car and let you know what it will take to fix it.
