Q: Dynamic Stability Control light on and stuck in 3rd gear

asked by on

My car’s mileage is around 161,000. The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) light has come on and it will not turn off. The transmission light is also on and it is stuck in 3rd gear. The automatic transmission selector lever and the program display lights will not come on the dashboard. The stick shift will move to any gear from the park gear and I don’t have to press my foot on the brake pedal. This is not the first problem I’ve had with my car. It has been continually in the auto repair shop. What do you suggest that is causing these current problems?

A: There is likely a wheel speed sensor issue ...

There is likely a wheel speed sensor issue causing the DSC light to be on. It also sounds like your transmission is in "limp' mode - being stuck in 3rd gear. The problem codes, and professional interpretation, will provide more specific repair guidance. Have an expert mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the current problem codes and assist with repairs.

Q: Hard clunk noise shifting/downshifting in 2nd & 3rd

Hello there, thank you for asking about your 2006 GMC Sierra 1500HD. Since you say it only happens when shifting between 2nd and 3rd, my guess is that the noise is internal to the transmission. A faulty shift solenoid could...
