Just to clarify you change the transmission fluid and the filter screen and how far did you drive it after that? Are you 100% certain that the fluid level is full? Did you use the proper transmission fluid? When you manually shift the lever to the low position does it engage? Have you rechecked the fluid levels that you drove it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just changed the transmission fluid here at work to see if that was the problem Bt it didn't fix it.

Was the problem there prior to doing the fluid exchange?

Hello you still there can someone help me pls.
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 1 year ago.

. You are 100% certain that the level is full and if you manually shifted to the L position will it try and move forward?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What's the amount it have in there? It will move forward even on low position
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 1 year ago.

The drain and fill on the pan usually takes about 3 to 4 quarts. Did you mean to say that it will not move forward even in the low position?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My bad it will not move forward on low position or any gear.
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunately I do not have good news for you if the fluid is full and it won't move in reverse and if you manually shifted to low this is not electronic problem this is strictly a hydraulic/mechanical problem inside the transmission. Reverse and the low position do not use electronics.

you're saying unfortunately it need another transmission?
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 1 year ago.

Yes or have it rebuilt but used is probably the cheapest option.
