My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
From what you have described here since you can cycle the key off and back on and it operates o.k. from there this indicates an internal electrical fault with one of the solenoids or sensors in the transmission needing replaced.I have seen solenoid failure in the past before cause this issue and had to replace the affected solenoid.
The transmission will need to be tested further to locate which is the cause here and then replaced from there.
Thanks Pete
