My car has an automatic transmission.
Assuming you are referring to the vehicle taking too much time to change gears, this may be a faulty transmission control solenoid. Modern automatic transmissions use pressurized hydraulic fluid to change gears. Every time a gear change is required, the car’s computer activates a transmission solenoid, which directs transmission fluid into the valve body to engage the correct gear.
When this is faulty or not working properly, it can cause a delay in gear shifting or, in some cases, cause the car to not shift at all. I would recommend having a professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to perform an inspection to determing why the gears are not shifting properly and what is causing the light to illuminate.
