Mazda transmission problem

Dear Barbara,

I have a 1990 Mazda 626 DX that will not go forward or in reverse because the hold button on the shift lever was accidentally depressed. The light on the dash blinks "hold". What do I do?

Please Help!

Dear Mazda owner,

This could simply be a fuse but no matter what you need to have your Mazda towed to your local Mazda dealership and have them diagnose it in order to determine exactly what is wrong with the electronic transmission that you have. This problem is pretty rare and can obviously cripple your car as you are experiencing. I am sorry that this is not a simple home repair that I could tell you how to fix yourself.

I hope this helps get you into gear and down the road!

BT
