problem #2

Sep 132012

TL 6-cyl

  • 149,000 miles
As I was waiting in my car, for my sister to get in. All of a sudden the ab light appears on my dash board. The second incident happen soon after that, as I was driving on the freeway, my car just came out of gear and wouldn't pass 1st gear. The D5 light started to flash on my dash board also. By then I had made it to the curb of the freeway, thankfully. I was really frighten cause I had my 8 month old baby in the back seat. Then it started to over heat as I was at a stop already.
