Check the buttons in front of the shifter. Those are the shift modes. If it is in W, it will do that. Press E or S, and if the problem goes away, there's your answer. It could also be a transmission solenoid, but check the buttons first.


The arrow went a way for a couple days but then came back..then went off again and came back on. I have no idea what it could be now. Help?

You can also take it to a place like Auto Zone and ask to use their code reader. That may be revealing as well.
