THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TEMPERATURE LIGHT COMES ON

2004 Dodge Durango • 107,000 miles

For about 10 to 20 seconds at a time then goes off. This happens about once a week.

i changed the transmission flupid and filters(yes it has 2 suprizingly) about 3 days ago hasn't came on then today on my way home from work it came on again for about 10 seconds. Then went right back off. It runs and shifts fine a possible loss of power but nothing drastic think its just getting old and needs a tune up.

it has been in the 90s everyday this has happened. This car is a WV car so not used to temps above 85 usually. What could be the problem.

Below normal trans fluid level can cause this or a bad transmission fluid temp sender. Were you doing any kind of heavy throttling before this happened?
