Just picked up an '07 3S Auto 63k

Used 3 owner but not new to Mazda. My daily driver is a '16 CX5 GT, the 3 is for my daughter. Just picked it up and already noticing problems. Searched the forums and the internet for same problem, but haven't been successful. So going to create a post requesting for help in the powertrain section.

Thanks for the welcome Racer. How long till I can create a new post? Basically, what is happening is the shift indicator light isn't always showing what gear I'm in. And when I am in motion and it's not lit on the instrument cluster, it doesn't shift properly. For instance, I was going 60mph, the RPM's were at 5500 and I couldn't slap shift either (not that I wanted to slap shift manually). It got horrible gas mileage because it wanted to zoom-zoom. Then when I stopped and went to park, it still didn't light up. So I wiggled it some and it lit up. Same for Neutral, if I wiggle the shifter it might light up. The car is cherry and really clean with only 63k miles. Any thoughts before I take it to the Mazda shop?
