Hello. It sounds like you will need to replace the transmission. When you have trouble switching gears, the car won’t accelerate, or the engine light or traction control light is flashing, these are all indicators of a faulty transmission.
There are clutches and a valve body inside the transmission that may be faulty as well, but because these components are inside the transmission, it will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
