Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

I think we may have a problem with the crank sensor and the transmission warning is on for a loss of engine speed. Another possibility is the torque converter is staying applied causing the vehicle to stall. It can then cause the vehicle to cut off when you go into gear. The crank sensor is also the input for the ignition system. To be sure we need to have the vehicle control modules scanned for the stored codes. We also need to see if we are losing ignition.
