Possible Shifter Problem

So I pulled off the freeway to switch seats with my girlfriend so i could drive. When I got in the driver's seat I recognized the check engine light AND the transmission warning light had come on. I started to freak. Then I noticed as I was shifting the tranmission would shift but the display wouldn't. I took it in and had the oBII look at it and it was the sensor. The mechanic said it was reset so i drove for a while and no problem. I has come on again and goes away after I start my car like 3 times. ANyone know what the part I need is called and can it be a DIY job?

Gear selector position sensor. It's a possible DIY but not an easy one. You have to remove the gear shifter, the trans fluid filler pipe, the battery and the battery tray. Isnt your car under warranty? This should be a powertrain thing because the sensor is attached to the transmission.

Unfortunately my warranty only covers lubricated engine parts. This is a electronic device so I might be SOL on this one.

There is a checking and adjusting procedure for the sensor so it might not need to be replaced.

Yeah it was the sensor and it was going bad. Running estimate price= $412.19 for parts and labor.

Guess the summer customization will ahve to wait. I was planning on getting these.

Make sure they try to adjust it before they just replace it.
