According to the owner's manual, the light is flashing because the transaxle has an electrical problem. Continuing to drive with it in this condition could cause damage to the unit.

What are possible causes for your 97 Saturn sl1 to slip out of third gear?

Could be your shifter cable has stretched and you need to replace it? On my 1995 Saturn SL2 I could not keep the shifter in 3rd gear. I replaced the tranny with one from the junkyard and the problem still persisted. I talked to Saturn and they said it was my shifter cable. I installed the shifter cable and the new tranny goes into 3rd gear without any problems. Please use this as an FYI. It was time consuming and expensive to replace the shifter cable, but a lot less expensive than the tranny. Hopefully it is something simpler for you.

What are the two buttons for near the shifter on the 2000 Jaguar XK8?

I've researched the answer and found that one button, which has a little icon that looks like a speedometer on it is for cruise control. The other button, which has an "S" on it, is for "Sport Mode", which causes you engine to rev a bit higher in each gear, spending more gas, but giving a faster acceleration.

What causes the floor shifter push button to stick on a 1997 Z34 and I have tried disconnecting the foot-on-brake safety solenoid?

something inside goes over center easy fix is to stop the button from coming out of the handle to far get a rubber o ring just larger then the button then slip it in to the handle so it acts like a circlip and prevents the button from releasing to far lubricate the button and o ring with some lubriplate so it moves freely then make sure the shifter works correctly going from drive to neutral without pushing the button it should not go past neutral in to reverse if it does try a diffrent size o ring if you got the right size o ring it should take about 1 min to fix plus the time to get the button in the first time T Bay INVENT
