#117 of 118 Mazda cx-7 "AT" light came on?? wont switch gears
Sep 09, 2013 (5:49 pm)
I have a 2007 Mazda cx-7......I just recently got in my car and put it in reverse and then put it into drive and gave a quick/strong jolt and went into 3rd gear and stayed there...would not switch to gears 1, 2, 4, or 5. I then drove it about .5 miles and turned it off...turned it back on, and when I put it in reverse again, it jolted....when I put it into drive this time, it went straight to 5th gear and would not switch......i even tried changing the gear from the manual settings and nothing would switch....its like its in some kind of lock position where the transmission cant switch the gears.....the last few times i have tried putting it into drive, it goes straight to 5th gear...
any ideas what is going on?? I am hoping it is a simple thing to unlock the system so it will switch gears again because today at 3:00, it worked perfectly fine and the next time i drove it which was around 6:30, it had this issue....engine sounds fine too.

My 2007 CX 7 Grand Touring with the smart fob. Was running great then suddenly no forward poll. It turned out the flex plate was cracked all around the bolts. After Replaced by Mechanic, It seems to be stuck in security mode. Cranks, sounds good. Just No fire to the motor. Tried both key fobs and keys. alarm sounds and will turn off with fob. still just cranks. Mechanic is baffled Im sick of having no vehicle. going on 2 months, ANY HELP PLEASE!
