1999 Buick Century 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 82,000 miles
When ever I put the shift lever on 1 or 2 from the park position a light on dashboard comes on that says I think is TRA OFF. If I put it on drive it does not happen.
The other issue is that the shift from Park to Drive is very rough like if the cable is stuck or possibly rusted inside, making the ship jerky and hard to move through the speeds when getting in gear.
What I don't know is what does this light mean.
The trany shifts find, the lever is the thing that is hard to move a bit. Also this happened after the engine was changed in the car. I have checked the lever, is straight, however there is some kind of plug near this leaver, appears to be oily, probably dirt. Not sure is that the neutral safety switch.
Will check this out as soon as the weather permits. Maybe I should disconnect the trans cable and see if it is still hard to pull, that would indicate is most likely the cable. Advise.
have the same problem?
