Hey everyone, first post here, having some issues with my 2006 Mazda 3 automatic transmission, it’s doing some weird shit and could use some advice on how to fix, lately it has been randomly downshifting from 5th to 4th and then lunging forward and and then go back into 5th gear, and when all this happens the lights that indicate what gear I am in go out, also having issues with it starting in park, have to start in neutral, could these be associated with eachother???

If you can't diagnose it yourself, because this is a such odd behavior, I'd just pay someone to diagnose it. Preferebly a transmission shop familiar with Mazdas. You didn't provide a lot of info here... like how many miles are on the transmission/car. Does the behavior only appear during acceleration or with foot off the gas, or during breaking or?
