Hi there, thanks for writing in.

The transmission range sensor error on your car is indicating a problem with the transmission range sensor circuit. Reduced fuel economy is a common symptom of this fault. This could be caused by a failed range sensor, bad connection at the sensor or at the computer, or a wiring issue. This should be left to a qualified professional, such as one from YourMechanic, who can accurately diagnose the cause of this fault, ensuring that you aren’t replacing unnecessary parts.
