my 2009 hyundai accent gls wont shift gears sometimes, its an automatic transmission

15

Asked by Jul 14, 2015 at 12:58 PM about the 2009 Hyundai Accent GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes it wont shift gears and stays in one gear. I usually am at roughly 3k RPMs
while going 65 MPH on the highway, when everything is working right. When it doesn't
shift gears I'm at 4k RPMs going 60 MPH. Could it be some kind of sensor??? Please
help me, thank you. Oh, and it has 56,500 miles on it and I otherwise love the car. I just
got it a few months ago and was hoping it would be reliable.

I'm thinking it may be my auto transmission speed sensor but I'm not too sure so any help is appreciated :)

input senor and the output senor not working right i have had this problem easy fix, if still does it transmission fluid and filter might be no good. try this step on the gas bring rpm 4 or 5 then let go then step on the gas again if shifts to the next gear transmission fluid and filter are no good, if nothing then input senor and the output senor not working right.

also my abs and parking brake dashboard lights AND my tire pressure light also came on when this was happening. think it could be a couple sensors that send info to my abs and such???

if the car is not starting right the lights may come on to it starts up.

try resetting computer unhook battery for one minute and hook the battery back up, and see if everything goes back right. if not you may have some bad senors or bad computer, i would go with senors first
