Answers :

The light is coming on to tell u that a fault is occurring in the auto transmission controls, most likely a shift solenoid is acting up or a torque converter switch, the reason it goes out is that the trans has to be operated, when it is the system tests itself, if a fault is still occurring the OD light will come back on. Go to a Kragen or Autozone parts store and have them test your system for trouble codes, it is free, then post them back here for me to look at and advise u of a possible repair procedure.

The electric dash mounted 2-4wd select switch is stuck in 4-low. When trying to shift to 2-high (engine idling, in park or neutral), you can hear the "click,click" noises coming from the front passenger side, under the dash or floor. The marker lights in the select try to go into 2-high, but stay in 4-low. After doing this several times, the problem light comes on on the dash (like the check engine light does), and the select switch power dies. When the engine is shue off and restarted, the prob

My 2003 Toyota Echo often hesitates while accelerating or cruising as if there was an interruption in fuel flow or a problem with the ignition. On one occasion, the engine stalled completely and the "check engine" light came on. The engine restarted easily enough, and when I drove on, the problem seemed to correct itself. The "check engine" light remained on for the remainder of that day, but did not come on when I restarted the following day. The problem of engine hesitation persists, but it is
