problem #2

Sable ES 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles

It runs good but after starting I have to begin in low and progressively upshift to drive. Overdrive not working but reverse is. I think it is an electrical issue. Also, my battery seems to drain fast. I had a KID install a stereo before the prob and I think he may have done something. It runs fine once I get it to drive 3rd gear. Any help is appreciated!

Have to start in low and work my way to third (when od lite goes on). When I start in drive it's like it's in low. Reverse works but I think it's electrical. HELP!
