lights flashing on dash and shifter

Is it ready yet?
That's a symptom of a failing neutral safety switch or PNP switch. They fail because they're plastic and are exposed to engine heat and weather. You will eventually get stuck in 2nd gear [limp home mode] Your back up lights may stop working, as the device acts as a switch for those lights too. Temporary fix will be to turn car to on, but don't start it, then run the gear shift lever back and forth through the gears repeatedly. This may unclog the PNP switch for a short time. This is not uncommon.
