Blinking "HOLD" Light. Hey guys, give it to me straight, what's the best and worst that it can be. Manual said that it's electric problem with transaxle. I was planning to take it to the shop, but first I would like some input, so I don't get ripped off.
Anyone had this problem with their automatics? Help!

You should be able to determine the cause of the problem yourself. Go to the diagnostic codes section of my website here for a list of codes for the ATX.

To get them, open the diagnostic box (beside the battery) and connect, with a paperclip, the "TAT" and "GND" pins (see the graphics I've got on that page...) Turn on the ignition, wait a bit then count the flashes. Long flashes are 10s digits, short flashes are 1s digits.

My guess: vehicle speed sensor (6 quick flashes).

You should know that ATXs are prone to failures. Hope it's nothing serious.

Thanks Mike, I'm not really mechanical, but this sounds easy enough. Hope for the best.
