Do you drive a car with an automatic transmission? 🚕 The interface of automatic vehicles is often simpler, and new drivers don't have to struggle with a seemingly unruly stick shift and clutch. But there are still some ways you can mess up your transmission. Here are 7 of the most dangerous mistakes you can make when driving an automatic! 📣 TIMESTAMPS: Don't shift from "drive" to "reverse" before your car stops moving 1:06 Never put your car in "park" before it stops completely 1:55 Don't put it in "neutral" at stop lights 2:56 Don't coast in "neutral" 3:53 Never “launch” your car from a standstill 4:44 Avoid keeping the gas tank on low 5:48 Do not let water get in the transmission 6:31 #automatictransmission #drivinghacks #drivingtips Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - If your brakes wear down, replacing them will cost you around $200. But by constantly shifting from "drive" to "reverse" while the car’s still rolling, get ready for damage that can run you at least $2,500. - When you throw it in “park,” a pin locks the transmission output shaft, which connects it to the wheels of your car. But if the car’s still rolling when you do this, either the locking pin or the output shaft may break or become eroded. - It's better to keep your car in "drive" than to switch it to "neutral" when stopped at a light. First of all, when your car’s in "neutral," you don't have as much control over it. So if you need to make some emergency maneuver, you may not be able to execute it in time. - Cars with automatic engines are designed in such a way that they save fuel even if the gear is in "drive." They simply cut the fuel supply when you're going downhill. - Plenty of drivers launch their cars all the time. This causes serious harm to the bands and clutches of the automatic transmission. When you shift, they use friction to move definite parts. - Ignoring the low fuel light may eventually cost you much more than just filling your tank up, especially if your car has an automatic transmission. - If water gets into the transmission, you're in big trouble. Even the smallest amount of water, just an ounce, can wreak havoc on your car’s transmission to the point that it needs replaced.

If you have a Litter-Robot III Open Air 3 and it's stopped working with yellow blinking / flashing light and/or the globe does not rotate in normal operating cycle or spinning continuously counter clockwise in one direction, then this video might be for you. With this type of yellow light error, if you continue to press power or cycle button, the globe will continue to spin in one direction and the key on the back of the globe might snap out and sometimes the bonnet will come loose. Of course if your unit is still under warranty, then you should call the Automated Pet Care Products, Inc. DBA AutoPets (https://www.litter-robot.com/warranty.html), Robot Shop (https://www.robotshop.com/en/litter-robot-iii-open-air-automatic-self-cleaning-litter-box.html) or any other authorized dealers where you bought the unit from, and have them diagnose via the phone. They will either send you a replacement part or fix it under the terms of the warranty. But what if the unit is not longer under warranty or you bought it from someone else or it was a gift? Then hopefully this video can help you. If you searched online, it might tell you that there is a problem with excess weight, globe positioning or defective hall effect sensor. Based on our experience however, this blinking yellow light as shown in our video is because of the anti-pinch safety feature malfunctioned or became defective. Basically, if the globe is blinking the yellow light, you will need to replace the Cat Sensor or re-position the Anti-Pinch safety feature. The Anti-Pinch safety feature is two pin connected to the motherboard that must touched each other continuously. If they are separated, you will have an alarm (yellow blinking light). The Anti-Pinch safety is located in the bottom back left of the Litter-Robot. You will need to unplug the unit, remove the bonnet, the globe and the drawer. It is the ''Two Metal'' pins. With a flash light, you should be able to see if they are touching each other or not. If they are not touching each other, try to re-position them with a flat screw driver by pushing them upwards. However, if they are touching each other, you will need to replace your cat sensor. With Litter-Robot III Open Air, should you have any problems or error lights, the first thing you should do is to empty out the litter, take apart the unit, thoroughly clean it and then put it back together and re-test the unit. Make sure the put the unit on a flat surface and away from the wall or corners. Most of the times, these simple procedures will help you repair the problems you encountered. In this video, we will take you through the steps on opening the bottom base unit and to remove or replace the anti-pinch detectors. Sometimes, the flashing yellow light might be followed by blinking red light or timing indicator, and in that case you might have to replace the cat sensor as well. If you need to replace the cat sensor, you check on our step-by-step tutorial video guide here: https://youtu.be/CNZOnJvPp9Q If you need more help with some of the problems or issues you might have with your Litter-Robot 3 then I suggest you click on the following link for the blog forum: https://www.robotshop.com/blog/en/litter-robot-ii-troubleshooting-guide-13929 If you need replacement parts, you can click here to order them: https://www.robotshop.com/en/litter-robot-replacement-parts.html

So how do you shift the gear lever from Park (P) to Neutral (N) if you car battery or engine is dead? In this video, young mechanic Aiman will show you a method how to do just that. Keep in mind that this method works exclusively for Honda Accord and many other cars make and model with automatic transmission but not for all vehicles, minivan or SUVs.
Ordinarily, in order to move the gear lever or selector, you would start the engine or with the key at #2 ignition, press the brake pedal, shift or push the button on the gear lever or knob and you're good to go. But if you have no key, the battery is dead or the engine doesn't work and you need to move the car to another location? The wheels are locked by the transmission therefore you need to move the gear to Neutral in order to push the car manually.
This method was demonstrated on a 2004 Honda Accord, which is the same as 2003, 2005, 2006 & 2007 years DX LX & EX model as well as on a 2010 Honda Civic 8th Generation which cover the years 2008, 2009 and 2011 models. Other Honda models such as Element, CRV, Pilot & Odyssey should also be similar although the position of the slot might be a bit different from model and years.
If your Accord has an automatic transmission, it has a shift lock release. This is an important feature and it’s designed to let you shift out of park if the gear selector won’t move when you press the brake pedal. That can happen for a couple of reasons (shift lock solenoid failure, or brake light switch failure). To use the shift lock release, follow these steps:
- Put the parking brake on.
- Take the key out of the ignition.
- Put a cloth on the edge of the shift lock release slot cover to prevent scratches. Use a small flat-tip screwdriver or metal fingernail file to carefully pry up the edge of the cover and remove it from the slot
- When the cover is removed, insert the key into the slot.
- Push the key downward, while pulling the button on the front of the gearshift to move it out of park.
- Remove the key from the slot.
- Replace the cover.
- Put the key back in the ignition and put your foot on the brake.
- Crank the engine.
If you’re having to use the shift lock to get your car out of park, it means there’s a problem that needs to be repaired (brake light switch or shift lock solenoid). Have it checked by your dealer or certified automotive shops or garages.
Some other reasons why you would want to move the gear is when you want to remove, repair or replace the center pocket console or remove and replace the factory radio on your car.
We've done videos on that so if you're interested please check those out. Young mechanic Aiman are currently doing many auto repair & how to fix tutorial & guide videos on several cars as well so stay tuned for that...
