My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi..I can help you with that. Service and warning lights usually have quite a few different code possibilities "behind" them. Typically, a certified mechanic from YourMechanic will use a code scanner, often vehicle manufacturer specific, to download the codes that have caused the warning light to set. Once those codes are in hand, the mechanic then has to test the appropriate individual vehicle components or sub-systems (often a sensor, circuit, and the like), based on specifications set forth in your car’s Factory Service Manual, to pinpoint the cause of the fault or the reason why the warning light has illuminated. Once the faulty part or component is conclusively identified, the fault is explained to your satisfaction and the mechanic will let you know of the cost to repair. If you desire this diagnostic service in order to get the warning light in your circumstance resolved, please simply request a diagnostic and the responding mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
