Have you check the transmission fluid

When the vehicle is stopped on a flat, level road and the engine is off, does the vehicle move when pushed? (in D range or N, R positions with the brake pedal released)

Hi

Did you try to push the car when in D, N, R. if you can push it with out any problem then you will have to take your car to a good tranny shop so they can Inspect LPS PID value using the WDS or equivalent.
Could be just a earthing problem at the PCM or you will need to Overhaul the control valve body and repair or replace any malfunctioning parts.

Need further assistance please let me know.
regards Greg
