I also notice the auto transmission failure indicator light is on as well. OMG What have I done? The manual said to put it in park, turn it off, apply hand brake, turn off few seconds, then restart. Said it should reset itself? really? Can anyone help, with this happening we are having to drive the 16ft penski rental truck w empty car dolly in Tx looking for hotel that allows pets. Are you kidding me. Any the worst part of it, it feels like Im in a freaking sauna. Im from Az and love the heat........... dry heat,,,,,, this is bullsht, humidity is insane, I hate walking from the house to your car and needing a shower. really?
You used a dolly instead of a trailer/flatbed to tow?
