My car has an automatic transmission.

You should check the main fuse box, in the engine compartment, for one or more large fuses that may be blown. These will power the smaller fuses in the passenger compartment. Once you find the blown fuse, recheck the inside fuses again to see if any of them blew out as well. If you need some assistance with getting this fixed, consider contacting YourMechanic. A certified technician can pinpoint the source of your electrical issue and help you fix it accordingly. Good luck.
