Question type: Maintenance & Repair

No problem with shifting or engine missing!  The light just stays on.  Was told contacts or something in the transmission was dirty.  What's the fix on that?

I don't know how someone would know, your ECU had bad continuity unless they were under there with the harness unplugged. if your contacts are in fact bad find the harness and unplug then replug your sensor wires. if you unplug and try scraping around in there your probably gonna mess something up. that's what i would try first. then if that docent help go talk to the dealership.
