Im the owner of a 95 camaro(6 cylinder). Never had problems with it until today. First it all started with the ABS light turning on which I knew it had something to do with the brakes. Then I started hearing a humming noise comming from tunder the hood. Then my gears wouldn't shift and I felt I was running in the last gear all the time.(which the car felt sluggish). The voltage of my battery was low..a little lower than the middle(battery is not old). and the turning signals were blinking super slow . THIS ALL HAPPENED TODAY! If anybody has an answer for all these problems..please help!

Check or have checked your charging system. Sounds like your alternator is not working properly.

If your alternator went out and your voltage dropped that low you might have triggered the ABS lockout. Once you fix the alternator, try resetting the ABS system before you drop a big chunk of change on a new ABS module. It happened to me and the ABS light stayed on for months until I figured out you can reset it. If there is truly a problem then the light will come back on but there's no harm in trying.

Does the electrical system control the gear shifting too? Since right after the problem with my alternator I was running sometimes in one gear.

well not realy, the "E" in 4L60E stand's for electronic controled. it is all controled by the ECU. if you are haveing a power fulx or low voltage the ECU go's nut's! all it control's go's nut's too.

have you even popped the hood, you could have thrown the serpantine belt , that being the pop you heard.. check the belt, then check or replace the alternator, as above, reset the ABS switch, (or pull the fuse and put it back in) and try again..
