I have an AT Jimny.
When driving I observed the following:
1) the engine rpm for 100 km/hr is higher than usual
2) when decelerating to stop, a relay clicking noise is heard from computer/transmissin control box area
3) occassionally when coming to a complete stop, the vehicle would stop then jerk forward slightly
4) when acelerating from a complete stop, with relay clicking noise, a loss of power is experienced and the vehicle takes a while to pick up
What do you think is going on?
Do you think that the car is going into fail safe mode i.e. going into 3rd gear?
If yes, how do I zone into which sensor may be defective? temperature, speed etc?
Appreciate any help.
