Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

it sounds like that is the case but to confirm can you have the car scanned and retrieve the fault codes

and post them back here. before you take to shop try this reset first maybe the trans module will wake up and started working again

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )

2- Hold cables Together for 20 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 10 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You
