Customer Question

Hi Richard we have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 5.9 automatic 4 x 4. We bought it a few months ago and the transmission was out so we replaced the transmission with a new one shortly after the we started having issues with it not going into o/d. It will start out shifting itself then o/d light comes on and it won't shift but you can turn it off then on and it works again. We tried getting it diagnosed they said ecm was bad bought a new one and it still does the same thing. New transmission, new ecm, and all new things that plug into the transmission can you please help us we are spending money on things we apparently don't need.
