Ok this is common to a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) being set and it not turning on the check engine light. If I had to guess, I would say it is a failure of the third or fourth gear pressure switch. You will have to get the vehicle scanned for DTC's first. Autozone will do this for free and tell you the code #. Do this and get back to me and I can help you further.

This is the best site that i have but the problem is, its in Germany. Anyway, worst case scenarios would be the stealership or this.

Please do not reply by clicking "Reply". reply by clicking "Answer Question" so it will reflect in my INBOX so i can get back to you if something comes up

Hi, Spoon Sports thanks for the help. I don't know my local mechanic able to do this DTC scaning. I wonder will they be able to find the fault if the gearshift indicator light is not blink the time i when to the workshop? It's unable to find the faulty right? It's got to be BLINKING inorder to find the faulty.

Well, anyway i will try to ask my mechanic to help me to scan and get the code. Any i will come back to you. Thanks a lot.

The code will remain in memory for him to see it even if the light is not blinking when he checks.

Chief, it will still show even though the light doesnt show up since codes are stored.
