you transmission temp gauge doesn't seem to be reading the most likely cause for this issue is the transmission fluid temperature sensor has failed . i have seen this a few other times and it is always accompanied by a flashing tow haul light. if you'd like the procedure let me know and i'll see if i can pull that information up for you.
