I would be suspicious of the C0055 code causing the problem. I have seen the ABS module take down the transmission control module communication/ power supply to the transmission control module.

Does the speedometer and odometer work?

How do i fix it
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 month ago.

1. Disconnect the Transmission Control Module (TCM). Turn the key on and on the Clear connector verify battery voltage to the Orange wire at pin 3 and the Pink wire at pin 4.

2. Verify a good ground on the same connector at pins 1 and 5. Both wires are Black/White.

3. Establish communications with the EBCM. Locate and ground the Yellow wire at pin 30 in the Clear connector at the TCM.

4. Within 3 - 10 seconds after grounding, expect the scanner to go to "No Communications". If it does, replace the TCM.
