A few months ago, my car started to slip out of gear for a second when I'd flip on my high beams. I'd hear an audible click, the light by "D" would go out, the check engine light would flash for a millisecond, and then everything would go back to normal. Then it stopped happening for a few months. Fast forward to the past two weeks, and now when I'm driving and brake, use the blinker, or the high beams, the same thing happens. If I'm at a stop and use any of these, the car shuts off. If I start the car and then turn on the lights, the car shuts off. Sometimes, if I idle in park and put it in gear, it shuts off. I have no problem starting it back up.
I've been told it could be a voltage problem, or that it could be a major electrical problem with one of the computers.
This is a newish transmission; was replaced about about 110,000 mi.
Help! Thanks in advance!
have the same problem?
