Hi my name is***** you still need help with this? If so let me know. The first thing you will want to check is the oil level and condition as well as for metal/debris in the oil/filter indicating an internal failure occurring. If okay then you will move onto checking power in and out of the shift controller and inspecting the wiring harness and connector pins for problems. Verify power to the shift solenoids in each gear position for a possible faulty shifter. Let me know
