car   Transmission Sensor problem of Ford Explorer

The vehicle was a 2004 Ford Explorer. Shortly after I first purchased the vehicle after about 2-3 years ago. I noticed it would jerk & was hard to shift gears. It would sometimes be in gear & not gas. After I took it to a shop to have it looked at it was a wire or cable loose to the trans. Everything seemed ok for awhile thereafter but then it started again. Just recently as I was on the expressway the transmission overheated light sensor came on & then the check transmission sensor followed. I researched and found that 1 out of every 10 customers with a Ford Explorer between 2000-2004 have transmissions issues. Also I called to Ford customer service and was advised that there is no recall even with several complaints and that no goodwill or financial services could be offered to assist me with the repairing of my vehicle, even after I stressed my complete dissatisfaction with the outcome. It was Mar. 14, 2012 when this transmission sensor issue happened.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Honda Pilot

2/24/10. 2005 Honda Pilot ex with 107k miles. Have a blinking "d" light after driving for a few minutes. The light stops blinking when I cut off the car and turn it back on, but then it returns. Today is the 1st day that this has occurred. Owner?s manual notes that the blinking "d" light indicates a transmission problem. I called the dealership (economy Honda-chattanooga, TN) who said that this is a common problem and may just be a bad transmission sensor which will cost me abt $350 and 2 hrs of my time. However, it could also mean that my transmission is failing prematurely. This is ridiculous as last month I spent over $1k to get the $105k mile maint and have always kept up with required maint. If this problem is so common- why has no recall been issued? in looking at other online complaints, the same issue occurs with the 2003-2004 Pilots. I have an apt with the dealership tomorrow to address this issue. This transmission sensor problem happened on 02/24/10.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Hyundai Sonata

The car was a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. My skid light warning light kept coming on. They said a brake lamp switch was pulling a fault code, so they replaced it. Nine months later my skid light warning was randomly coming on again. They ran a test again saying it was a faulty brake lamp switch again. Before I could get it in for repairs the transmission range sensor malfunction on Aug 14 2012. Picked up my car again and the skid traction warning light came on again. I took it in again this time the tcs light was on and the shifter was not releasing. They tested the brake switch circuit and found no power to the brake switch. They replaced the fuse box and harness cable. I have called three different dealerships service departments and they all say there is a problem with the brake lamp switch causing the tcs warning light to come on. If it is effecting other cars there most be a national problem and should be a recall before there is a fatality. I have had this car for 2 years now and had it in for electrical problems over eight times. ## VIN passed ## Hyundai Sonata 2011 ##. This transmission sensor issue occurred 09/08/2011.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Land Rover Freelander

The car involved is a 2002 Land Rover Freelander. The VIN of this Freelander is SALNM22282_. I purchased a new 2002 Freelander from Land Rover fort worth (TX) in January of 2002. While under warranty the car had numerous problems. My warranty expired in February of 2006 (4 years), but due to my low mileage 32,000 miles, I did not purchase an extended warranty. Since February 2006, I have replaced the brakes for the 3rd time ($1000), had the engine overheat due to a faulty temp gauge which in turn blew the intake gasket ($1500), replaced the heater core again (pd. For by dealership), and am now faced with replacing the entire transmission ($5000). My transmission trouble began in early August 2006, when the car began to jerk and shudder unexpectedly. I immediately took the car into the dealership to check out the issue. They replaced the transmission temp sensor and said the care was fixed. I picked up the "fixed" car and 4 hours later the dangerous jumping/shuddering happened again. While attempting to drive the car back to the dealership, the problem grew worse and several warning lights lit up on the dash. I pulled over and the car was then flatbedded to the dealership. The next diagnosis was that an electronic computer chip (ecc) for the transmission needed to be replaced. The part was ordered and installed - but this did not fix the problem. The dealership now states that the entire transmission needs to be replaced for $5000. The car currently has 37,000 miles (highway and city miles only - no off-roading) and has been serviced on time and only at lr dealerships for routine maintenance. I find this entire situation unacceptable. It was 08/07/06 when this transmission sensor issue occurred.

The vehicle is a 2004 Mazda Mpv. I purchased a 2004 Mpv arch 28, 2005. To date, I have had this van in for warranty service to replace ignition coils three times: 10/31/06 ã‚ 31,770mi - #4 coil replaced. Transmission range sensor replaced also 12/05/06 ã‚ 33,229mi - #4 coil replaced again 1/08/07 ã‚ 34,708mi - #6 coil replaced. Today as I was driving, the same symptoms ã‚ steering wheel vibration, bucking, lurching ã‚ occurred as before when the other coils failed. The cel came on, I checked for the code and I discovered that the #5 coil has failed. Now this will be the fourth service for the same problem. There has been no effort on the part of country Mazda to find the source of the coil failure. Replacing the parts obviously is not solving the problem. This issue happened on April 17, 2007.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Mercury Monterey

Incident first occurred on 6/20/2010, on I-64. I was driving our 2004 Mercury Monterey when I realized that the transmission had slipped from d3 to d2. I stopped van and it worked fine after restarting, but was afraid to use it; only used several times for short trips in the interim - no problems, however, with the transmission. Took to dealer on 7/30 - 41,779 miles - extended warranty (esp) expired 2/5/10. Dealer replaced transmission range sensor and brake pressure switch at a cost of $325. 22, including diagnostic check. Dealer also flushed and filled transmission - twice to remove water - cost: $184. 87. I asked for the old parts - dealer did not return them. Picked up vehicle on 8/1/10; transmission worked fine, but the traction control system (tcs) light turned on and stayed on. Did not drive until 8/6 when I took it tire shop to have tires replaced - no cruise control and the tcs light was on. The service manager at the tire shop checked alldatapro. Com and found a TSB that indicated that Ford had learned that some 2004-2007 freestar and Monterey transmissions had water/moisture problems causing problems with the tcs, among other things. Also, in checking other complaints reported to NHTSA, found one where a Ford dealer noted that a transmission seal had failed allowing water to enter computer (transmission range sensor?) causing both computer and transmission to fail. On 8/7, found that dealer had not reconnected cruise control, and noticed that the tcs light turned on after depressing the brake twice. Then noticed that the transmission would not shift to drive 3 - stayed in d2 - back to the original problem from 6/20! stopped and started van again, no change in the transmission, and the tcs light turned on after pressing brake twice. Have not tried to drive the car today, and now, after reading many of the complaints regarding transmission failures in 2004 Montereys, I'm not sure if I should even attempt to drive it the 38 miles back to the dealer. This issue happened on Sunday, Jun. 20, 2010.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Nissan Pathfinder

I had multiple posting previously on my 2006 brand new Nissan Pathfinder. First problem was with the ecm which was later fixed for about $2000, later Nissan reimbursed. As lithia spring GA. Nissan dealership had my SUV to fix the ecm, on day of pick up, 2 front catalytic converters were defective evidence by a loud hollow noise which the dealership denied. Few months later I was notified by Nissan manufacturers to take my SUV for a recalled maintenance on radiator assemble issues. I took my SUV to the same dealership with my noticed, the dealership refused to complete the recalled maintenance and claimed that my SUV had a higher mileage than what the manufacturers are recalling. Two weeks later my SUV went into a cloud of smoke with a rooting eggs odor and as I towed the car to the same dealership, I was charge $98 to complete diagnostic and I was informed the valves body, the transmission sensor and my transmission need a replacement for the total of offer $5000. I managed to complete payment on the car, I had just cancelled the registration on my SUV. I still need help to get my SUV running again. At the time of purchased I drove of with only 20 miles in my SUV. It is un-acceptable that Nissan and Nissan dealership around the nation would not stand out to take full responsibilities to their defective products; rather, to try to clean out the pockets of Nissan owners. I had a service manager at Nissan lithia spring GA. Asked me what type of job am I doing? I told him that is irrelevant. My speed on the day my SUV went into full white smoke was between 35-40 miles. This issue happened on 03/19/2011.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Suzuki Forenza

The car is a 2008 Suzuki Forenza. Starting in January 2014 car had approximately 75,000 miles on it and began lurching into gear from stopped. When put into reverse, jumps into gear. When put into drive after backing out of driveway lurches forward starting in 3rd gear and continues during driving. Husband diagnosed after much online research and a few months later, even taking code into dealership for repair. Dealer insisted they couldn't replicate and cleared code without making note of problem. My husband argued that we wouldn't be picking car up until the problem was replicated and taken care of. After insisting they couldn't replicate, we drove back to dealership and made service manager ride with husband until car "performed" malfunction, literally a half of a block from dealership. It was obvious they were avoiding problem and hadn't driven car at all! code was noted as 0700, just as my husband had reported initially. Transmission sensor was replaced and after diagnostics were finally properly preformed, airbag light was also reset (has continued to come on almost entire time we've owned the car-were told our daughters long legs were kicking wires underneath drivers' side seat) and also made aware voltage is too high on drivers side but nothing was done to fix either. Dealership offered no solution. Spent $191. 65 to fix transmission sensor. Originally charging $260+ but husband demanded reduction in diagnostic price due to the fact we had to drive back into town to dealership to duplicate problem for incompetent/unwilling service department . Very unsatisfied and will be looking into options after seeing transmission range sensor seems to be ongoing epidemic for many 2008 Suzuki Forenza owners. Have also had ongoing problems with seat airbag sensor not working on front passenger's side since 2009. The failure date was Friday, Jan. 10, 2014.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Suzuki Reno

The vehicle is a 2008 Suzuki Reno. Vehicle lurched and hopped out of gear. I took the vehicle to the mechanic, he stated the code indicated the transmission range sensor was having an issue, not covered by warranty. I had it replaced at a later date. The fix lasted about 2 months and the sensor again went bad, I just had it replaced again but it did not solve all of the issues, I have to drive in 3 to keep the car shifting and keep it from randomly hopping out of gear. This is dangerous! I have pulled out onto highways and had the car jump out of gear and not be able to manuever to a safe spot, nearly getting hit numerous times. This is a known issue! if you visit any Suzuki or repair forum you will see numerous posts on this exact problem. It is a safety issue as well as a mechanical one. This needs to be investigated before someone dies. It was October 9, 2012 when this transmission sensor issue happened.

car   Transmission Sensor problem of Jaguar S-type

Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is SAJEA01T43_. Jaguar S-type sedan 2003 was subject to recall r-513 but not limited to this. This vehicle experienced major malfuctions in performance with gear box and braking systems in which it could not be properly shifted out of park, lost rpm, parking brake failure, abs warning lights and major engine light indicator warnings. The car could not be safely driven and suffered a major breakdown with less than 9500 miles, flatbedded to sportique motors in huntington, NY on 12/10/2004, returned on 12/15/2004 only to be flatbedded again on 12/17/2004. A new computer was not installed in the vehicle as promised at that time, and the computer was simply reflashed. At 33,948 miles out of warrenty on may 26, 2010 this vehicle suffered the same major breakdown as discribed above and was again flatbedded to huntington Land Rover Jaguar, formerly sportique Jaguar, huntington, NY. The car could not properly be shifted out of park, lost rpm and could not be driven safely. The dealership worked on the car four (4) times declaring the problem solved on three occasions from may 26, 2010 until it was flatted bedded back a forth time on 07/22/10 only to be told the car needed a new "park sensor module" and and new "transmission sensor" at a cost of over $4000 dollars with labor. My attemps to obtain assistance from Jaguar central and huntington Jaguar based on my contention that the vehicle was never properly fixed when under warrenty resulted in continual refusals by these parties with claims by the dealership that a faulty truck seal and water leak that certainly did not exist at 9500miles necessitated the costly repairs (the transmission sensor is inside the sealed transmission). My complaints to the dmv ( with lookback of 90 days) has resulted in their findings of a dealership mis-diagnosis . The car remains incapacitated and unsafe to drive. I respectfully request an investigation into all repairs and histories of similar models related to NHTSA recalls but not limited to this. This problem occurred on Wed., May. 26, 2010.
