Hello, my name is ***** ***** i can help you, you can first try to remove the battery cables and touch them together to clear the memory, then start and drive off and see if the fault reappears, also see what gear number is ***** in the display when this happens if it happens again, you can always try to change the fluid yes, that is always where we would start, hopefully the memory erase and the fluid help and you dont have to spend a fortune on a new trans. i also recommend having the codes read to see what the fault code actually is that would help but sadly to say that if the memory erase and fluid do not help then the trans will most likely have to be replaced. i hope this was helpful.
