Probably the oil filter is blocked.
Warm it all up with a 30-45 minute drive & then change the oil in the gearbox whilst it's still hot. Make sure you also change or thoroughly clean the gearbox oil filter at the same time.
After that you're looking at the tension bands & the dog-clutches, which are a specialist mechanics job.

Unfortunately the horn switch is not serviceable on this vehicle.

The horn switch is built into the air bag assembly and can not be removed safely, nor are service parts available for it even if you could. If there is a problem with the horn switch, the air bag must be replaced.

1% is a mechanical failure but switching the key off and depressing the brake usually controls the situation.

Picture of location for what ?
First thing to do with any transmission codes is check the fluid and clear the codes after recording them then redo a test drive cycle

A P1750 can be anything from a wiring short or a bad TCM

It could be the converter clutch solenoid, shift control solenoid, pressure control solenoid or engine control module has failed.

If the code comes back then you will have to check the wiring harness to the transmission and test the solenoid pack and see if they are malfunctioning ! Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Sorry to tell you this, but it sounds like they may have put your rings in wrong or one broke right away. If you want to verify which cylinder it is, pull the spark plugs and see which one has oil on it. I suggest you take it back to the place that did overhaul and have done over.

Your tail lights and brake lights are on a separate electrical circuit mainly because your brake lights need to be activated by the brake switch in your brake petal. Check the voltage regulation circuit in your dash light circuit to see what is faulty.

Better make sure it isn't a no tolerance engine first. If it is, the pistons could have slapped the valves. This will bend the valves, break them, or punch holes in the pistons. I know the 4 cylinders are not tolerance, but not sure on the six cylinder. You can do a leak down test, but you have to basically pull the cams, So the valves are shut. Then put air pressure to each cylinder. If the cylinder is bad it will leak air(a lot) out of the throttle body, exhaust(out of the tail pipe) or into the crank case.

Hi,some times the head gasket can go and you dont get the musterd mix of oil and water,so you get petrol and spark but wont run,I would get a compression test to see if the compression is ok just incase the head gasket is gone,(remember as I cant see the car in person these are educated gesses)I hope you sort it out.
