Checking for Automatic Transmission Codes
Another step in your diagnosis is to check for codes. You do this in the same way you would check for engine codes. There are specific codes for automatic transmissions, but they are specific to manufacturer. This means that you might need a special scanner, and also the service information for your vehicle, to interpret these codes. Just about every late-model transmission is electronically controlled. This means that if you have an electrical failure, your transmission won’t shift correctly. Pulling the codes is a good way to find out if this is the case. If you have a shifting problem and you don’t have any codes, check the fluid level and condition. If it’s good, then it might be time to consult a professional.
