Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check your fuses and relays first and then the harness from the controls to the transmission controller and to the drive motor sensors. See if there are any error messages/faults logged that will help isolate this further. Look for metal/debris in the hydraulic and transmission filters that would indicate a mechanical internal failure occurring. Let me know
