2008 Ram 2500 6.7, 6 speed, 130,000 miles. While in drive it

Customer Question

2008 Ram 2500 6.7, 6 speed, 130,000 miles. While in drive it drops to 4 gear, wont shift up or down. I discovered that if I turn the engine off for a couple of minutes - restart and go to reverse traveling 100 feet or so - it then works normally.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?
Customer: Original, fluid serviced twice. Brake Switch?
JA: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: NO. I'm trying to determine what course of action to take. From what I seen on the web so far, no one has a clue.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

The first thing you will need to do is see what codes is has with a scantool.. Can you run by any parts store and have them read the codes free of charge and post the codes here so I can see what's going on?

Talk soon,
