Hi Mick, my name is***** will be glad to help. check the transmission filter for signs of metal/debris indicating an internal problem or failure occurring as well as the oil level, condition and for burnt smell and discoloration. If ok the next step is to test power in and out of the shift controller and for continuity in the harness for a possible faulty shift controller or harness. If they test good in all gear positions, check the solenoids for operation and try swapping locations to see if the problem moves with them. Let me know
