Doesn't sound good, can you post a pic of the dashboard with the lights on, or give a better description. Red lights are not good, yellow are warning. You can look up what the lights mean in your owners manual. I wouldn't drive it anymore till you have it sorted out. Get someone to scan the car for the codes too. See if a friend has one.

Okay i will reply soon with more info

I had this problem, the dealer said I may need a new trans. I began by checking fuses, then reset the computer . Everything has been fine for over a year.
