My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. Most of the time this is caused by a bad battery. This is a very common issue that will occur if there is a battery or alternator failure. I usually load test both the battery and the alternator to identify the problem. If you need to have this looked at, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the scan codes and replace the battery or alternator.
