Customer Question

Hello, I recently changed my trans pan/filter and fluid and everything seemed to go smoothly- I even went back over the job a second time to make sure. Problem is after the first fill, the trans won't shift into any gear, saying "Trans Range N Only when
Engine On!" NOTHING EVEN CLOSE TO THIS HAS EVER HAPPENED BEFORE. I tried over and over and couldn't get anything, so I reset the transmission, but nothing better. Lastly, I triggered the Emergency Brake Release beside the OBDII port using my key, but to no
avail- How do I get the transmission to shift back into gear?? PLEASE HELP
