Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you.. It sounds like your PRNDL switch is bad..
With the selector lever in position "D", the transmission control module (TCM) automatically shifts the gears that are best-suited to the current operating situation. This means that shifting of gears is continuously adjusted to current driving and operating conditions in line with the selected shift range and the accelerator pedal position. Starting off is always performed in 1st gear.
The selector lever positions are determined by a sensor assembly internal to the shift lever assembly (SLA). The sensor assembly identifies the various positions of the SLA according to the following table.
The current selector lever position or, if the shift range has been limited, the current shift range is indicated in the instrument cluster display.
The permissible shifter positions and transmission operating ranges are:
The shift range can be adjusted to the current operating conditions by tipping the selector lever to the left-hand side ("-") or the right-hand side ("+") when in position "D". If the shift range is limited, the display in the instrument cluster indicates the selected shift range and not the currently engaged gear.
Tipping the shift lever will have the following results:
The vehicle should still start if TCM has failed.. I have replaced TCM's that were faulty and customer drove to dealership... Another are to look is the WCM on that model.. They are bad about going out, since it wont crank over... Can you communicate with WCM? What codes are in PCM?
