I am sorry for the long wait

do you have a multi meter on hand ?

Expert:  Gary replied 8 months ago.

most of these doing this are bad ignition switches not powering the transmission and dash gauges correctly

to confirm this check and see if the fuse called trans shows 12 volts when its acting up the odds are it will not it will show 0 volts or very low volts

replacing the ignition switch will correct this issue
