Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
Always check the battery and charging system first, then move to the component that is lacking accurate power and search for a bad ground if the power source is too low.
If all this is good, then read below.
Here’s the sequence of events I follow:Check fluid level and color. Make appropriate repairs.Check shift solenoids with a scan tool in bidirectional mode ifapplicable. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission and this isthe easiest way to check them.Drop pan and inspect for excessive metal shavings inside pan.Check valve body and clutches visually.Hopefully you may not have to go this far, maybe you just were abit low on fluid.Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keepthis link in case you need me again later on.I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate meRon
You're welcome, please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keep our link in case you need me again,
The that was set. Complete system voltage OR trans solenoids voltage.
If your battery and charging system are working properly, then you can have a bad ground in the shift solenoid circuit.

Nope, but the shift solenoids are all inside the trans anyway. You can't get to them without taking off the pan. They are located right on the valve body. A diagram isn't needed anyway once you see the plug. that's your testing point unless you want to do it the easy way with a scan tool.
I'm ready to be rated now for additional assistance, incentives:)
Please read last reply.
Thanks again, Ron
You bet, thank you too.
Most parts stores will loan you a good scan tool for just a deposit and that will get the job done for you.
You may have it fixed already. No tips, just testing.
