Do you see the Shift-Up Light blink at you in 5th gear? Does the car have
a mystery 6th gear???
This situation can typically be blamed on a bad 5th gear/reverse switch or it's
wires. Any transmission servicing (i.e. clutch work) can cause the wires
to be pulled or the switch damaged. The switch is on the back end of
the transmission. The switch is supposed to tell the ECU that the car is
in 5th gear (and reverse), and that prevents the Shift-Up light to switch on.
