Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that there could be an issue in both replacement transmissions but it's not really that likely. If the trans has been replaced twice, the speed sensors and solenoid pack have been replaced then I would suspect a wiring, TCM or possibly a trans relay issue. You can swap the trans relay with another to see if that helps.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is seeing what fault codes are set in the TCM. Do you know what codes are currently setting?

If it's setting a solenoid circuit code and the solenoid pack has been replaced with a new part then it could be a wiring or TCM issue, but it's more likely a wiring problem. It could be high resistance, an open or short to power or ground.
